Tapping Lian Li Case?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay so let me start off by giving a basic overview. I have the Lian Li Pc A70B. When I put the side panels on and screw them in with the Lian Li thumbscrews they never tighten down, they just spin. Now upon looking at the case and the screws themselves I noticed that the thumbscrew holes in the back of the case are completely stripped. I'm thinking that the easiest fix is to just tap the hole for a slightly larger size screw. Maybe something decorative like an Allen head (I don't need thumb screws). I'm pretty unfamiliar with screw sizes so I was wondering what size tap I should go with? One that would give me plenty of options screw choice wise. Thanks guys.

Ihave the same cast and lost the bolts from the card holders. The thumb screws are #4 metric threads, almost impossible to find, though I did get some. Perhaps a better solution would Ve to use the threaded clips that are used to mount trim pieces on cars. Just threading the metal case won't work, it's to thin.
