Basically here is how I would do it.

1. Remove the plastic rivets from the outside edges of the window by pushing out the push pin in the center of the rivet and remove window

2. Take the Window and lay it on a towel and the get some Aluminum foil and lightly lay it over the surface of the window and tape it down on two ends. Then punch out the rivet holes and cut around the edge to make a template.

3. Buy some new Plexi at lowes or Home Depot and get the 3/8's thickness

4. Then take the aluminum Foil template and tape it to your new plexi.

5. Then take some spray paint and paint a light coat over the edges of the aluminum foil and let dry.

6. Make sure that you paint every dot where the holes should be drilled.

7. Remove Template and cut along the edges with a dremel rotory tool , a jigsaw or a band saw.

{Optional.. At this point if you plan on using a window film on the PLEXI this is the time to do it.

Also if you are going to install a fan hole then use a 4 1/2 inch Arbor Bit from lowes and then gently drill the fan holes and use the rubber fan Holds. Put Green Frog tape over the area where you will be drilling the Arbor Hole so you dont Scratch the surface. Make two and send me one.}


8. Then use a 3/8's drill bit and very gently and slowly drill out each rivet hole.

9. Line up your new plexi and then replace the plasic rivets into the drilled holes and replace the center extenders that will hold the window in place.[/B]

I got another question for you guys.

I'm only installing 1 HDD in my scout and I was wondering which slot should I put it in for maximum air flow as well as cooling my HDD. And do HDD's even get that hot?

the weakest spot in in front of a fan is right at the center, so any slot top or bottom that isn't right in front of the hub will give you good airflow. According to my SMART temp, my data drive hangs out at about 35*C.
