A transparent fan can make it look cleaner and noctua fans can make it look more retro since they are brown : D
Thanks SarpEye. I've had the Noctua fans in mind but I chose something else. See the update.

Thanks Phill1978! It is hard to imagine some things in your mind but, hopefully the results are gonna be nice.Update!
And here we go! A day off, time for some fun!
First I need to saw the front out of the plywood.

The frontplate fits exactly with the screws bolted on. Nice!
Here is another picture.
Here you can see the backplate for the case. I'm using a special saw that can make figures, like a Figuresaw (don't now the word
Between the cutting a sprayed the Coirsair 200mm Fan with plastic primer.

Now is the wait for, cleaning. And the samples for the fabric is coming these days.
