I own a IMSAI 8080 without an top cover.
Now i want to build a new one like the original.
Is there an IMSAI 8080 owner, who is able to scan the sides of the top cover with the vent slots in it?
Also the exact thickness of the original sheetmetal, the height and depth of the cover are interesting for me.

Have you tried to contact Todd Fisher at IMSAI.net?

E-Mail:
trf@imsai.net

Mailing Address:

He may be able to send you a copy of the appropriate drawings.

I know that Todd has been ill over the past some years. He has always not been easy to communicate with, from my experience anyway, but it certainly would be worth a try.

@Frank, I have a top cover, it's from an early one, means produced between December 1975 through August 1976.
It's an steel cover and not aluminium like the later ones.

From which time period is your IMSAI (aprox)?

PM me if you interested.

I don't know some serial number or time period about it.
The CPA panel seems to be a late one. It is REV. 5, which is slightly different from previous versions.
The case botton has the widest measure of 432mm.
