Yeah, they have odd working hours. I had to wait about 7 working days once for a simple question..

And if you give them a chance you'll wait another 5-6 days, then another after that.

 

Yes, you have to babysit them.

 

Better to go on live chat.

Or you can use acrylic and bend it with heat, but I'm much more familiar with working with metal, so that's the reason I went with that.

This is hotness! But how do you cut the sheet metal to size?

If you are asking that then you really shouldn't attempt lol

So I know that they have the left side panel with window in black being sold on their site but is there a matching right side panel for the opposite side in black like the stryker has?

I got the usb over voltage warning at post, turned out one of the usb 3.0 female connectors was damaged
The blue plastic clip fell out, I tried to put it back and no show. CM store doesn't sell that particular cable separate.

I used a jig\sabre saw. It is totally do-able for a beginner, just make sure to go slow, wear safety glasses (this can't be stressed enough when working with metal) and ask any needed questions.

no they dont they have a windowed trooper that does have the matching side but i have only ever seen it for sale 1 time. so i would not hold my breath about getting it. it is usually either you go with miss matching sides or you go with stock. you can try to fine one for sale on ebay but again my best of luck goes out to you on that.

+1 about safety also should wear gloves and expect to bleed (full leather only ) you can also use sheet metal snips but sheet metal is kind of an art form ....

Yeah, sheet metal definitely can be finicky. I could have welded something up, but wanted to keep things as light as possible.
