Well.. how much time did it talke to cut/drill everything? I don't think it's a bad option for someone who doesn't want to take their case "under the knife".. I agree that doing it yourself would be more fulfilling though, yours turned out very nice..

step 1: flip it around, cover the cutting areas with ample painter's tape.
step 2: center and place the window, drawing out the holes and the perimiter
step 3: cut
step 4: drill holes
step 5: file down rough edges

i would advise you to take your time. it took me 3 hours.

securing the buldge was the hardest part. you might want to quickly cut that out first, or use styrofoam as a base, chizeling out enough foam to secure the pane.

use a power drill first to drill holes all around the perimiter, especially at turns. this will allow the jigsaw to quickly go thru it with ease.

also, u might need someone to hold it down if u are using the styrofoam

Right, I would probably not go about this alone. Another set of hands would be nice to have.. 3 hours isn't bad.. especially if your enjoying yourself.. and the final product looks killer!

the good thing of having the black acrylic frame in front of the case is that it covers any un-even or non-straight cuts. so as long as u get it somewhat right you're golden. no dealing with u-channel or painting it. no one ever sees it.

I did notice that from the pictures you showed us. That is nice to have the black acrylic frame in front.. . Was that the first time you've done a window mod ?
