I wish I had pictures, but the process was fairly simple. I took out the mesh, and grabbed some pliers and bent back the tabs from the panel, so they wouldn't show through the Lexan. I used the mesh piece as a template, and I made a rough cut of the final shape, and from there a lot of sanding with 100 grit paper, test fitting, sanding, test fitting and sanding, etc, to make it fit snug. I did put some super glue around the edge (and thats where I kinda ruined it LOL) to make sure it wouldn't come out. Thats why I put the blue tape around the edge, so I could hide some spots where you can see a bit of the glue. I'm going to have to do it again at some point, because I know I could have done it better. Maybe next time around I would just dremel off the tabs from the panel, and fill in the tiny gaps between the Lexan and the panel with some U-channel (I don't really like the idea, I think it looks much cleaner without it) But work and the baby don't leave me with much time for mods. Next time around I'll make sure to take pictures and post them here.
Here is one guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/1226914/corsair-carbide-500r-now-with-side-window
, but I didn't want the white tabs that hold the mesh in place to show through the acrylic.Edited by nicolasl46 - 9/18/12 at 2:59pm
