i have some 1 inch thick plates of aluminum I salvaged from an industrial park, I'm think of milling the case out of two pieces. My question is do you think that the case would heat up from the heat sink (with fan) too the point of being uncomfortable to use. It's a Wii portable

If the fan is decent, it'll be fine. You'll just have to insulate the inside to prevent shorts with internal components.

What would you suggest for the insulation, I'm an electrician apprentice and have rubber tape but its thick?

Absolutely just haven't gotten far enough to consider a work log. The bitbuilt community has already helped me a ton and probably wouldn't be happening with out the help.
