Ogre, truly, I'm flattered. A couple of things that may help you in your ventures:
1- when you do make your lines to cut on, measure it twice first.
2- do your cuts on the side of the line that is to be removed, and file/grind straight.
3- make your first cutting pass light, almost like engraving, and do passes until you're through the material.
4- remember, slow and steady. The you won't end up doing it again which gets it done faster.

Good day!!! after a slow week, i have a couple more pictures to add.

first, is the extension for the fans. i didnt really like the original cables, and instead of going the easy route and just sleeving the whole thing and running it, i came up with another plan. figure, each knob is like a battery. one knob per fan, 8 knobs on front of case, right? well, i decided to instead join all knobs per side in a parallel curcuit through the extension and on to each fan. this way, i wont have to turn each fan up individually, as each knob will add more amps to the line, pushing that sides fans faster, while keeping the volts under control.

also youll notice i painted the inside light gray, but its gonna take a bit more sanding till its ready for a good picture. but i lined up an extension on it for show.

ahhh back again. so after a few (lol) weeks with out any updates, here are a couple more pictures.

what im doing in these is cutting out the 6 in the side pannels. and of course, it will be backed by plexi so no worries about the weak spots. also, im toying with the idea of leveling it off with acrylic after the paint is done. the 4 holes in the bottom there are for the air intake, and i have 8 of those 3 part fan filters to cover it.

this little guy here is a oem case hdd rack. i cut out the top and mounted it in the case. probably gonna stick a fan to the side of it too.
IMG_0264.jpg

here is the front, all filled and ready. just need to re-primer the sanded areas. the holes cut out are for the fan controler knobs and led's. and yes, it matches up perfectly.
IMG_0265.jpg

what you cant really see here is the clamps and steel im using to here hold the rubber strips in place while the glue sets. ill add more pictures of that as it moves along.
so soon will be the other pannel cuts, primer, and mounting. love mounting.

ok, here wee are again with another update. its been a while, but im close to finishing. without further excuses:

what we have here is the case screws i chose to use to keep the hood and panels secured, along with a rivet. (explained next)
IMG_0266.jpg

i somehow (lol) missed my marks when lining up the panels, and it was a tad off, but enough so that my threads and holes for the case werent gonna work. so, after a lot of thinking, i decided to resize the case holes, and use a larger rivet as a threaded insert. all i did was remove the post, drill it out just a little, and tap the inside. then, i positioned the panel to center the insert, little epoxy, and a screw to hold it, and, BOOM!!!! perfect fits!!!
IMG_0267.jpg

now, here we are with the rubber seals in place (although dirty) and the hoods/panels in place (one side open for show). the tape is still in place cause i need to do the airbrushing on the outside (need to re-tape the hoods) and since i promised the evil dictator i live with to clean the garage before i paint, hopefuly ill be brushing this weekend.

also note, ive changed the hardware from 2x 5870's, to a single 7970, and added ssd's to my list, and ram/mobo change.
