I was thinking a couple of these disk trays that "corpsys" on ebay always has:

$295 for 144GB 8x18GB.  Price is ok, but the size seems kinda weak,
given that I have a 200GB IDE in my external FW enclosure.  A 7x73GB
tray (511GB) is $995.  Anyone have any leads on how to beef up the
disk sizes on those without breaking the bank too badly?  There is
only one auction for a 146GB FCAL disk, though the 36GB's have
starting bids in the $1-5 range.
