Having used both with and without the enclosure, if I ever ordered a third
one, it'd be without. Even with the ventilation holes, it gets pretty warm.

I say give the option.

Roy, in my opnion, your best option would be to offer the option to the customer and then you could charge accordingly when the extra time is needed to do the enclosure.  personnally i would order one (and in fact probably will) without the enclosure.    

Please let me know how much they are (without the enclosure) for my planning purposes.  Thanks.
