Dressing up your hole....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am kind of new to case modding, but I have a project I am working on and I need to cut a hole in a grill area. Any suggestions on how to dress up the edges of a hole so that it looks intentional rather than an afterthought? Where to buy such things?

Thanks in advance.

A grill? Do you mean like a built in air holes in a case?

U channel might not work to well for that. How big of a hole? For a fan u channel might be your only bet. If it is tubing, gluing a rubber or plastic washer on there and painting it might work

Thanks! biggrin.gif

I've placed a few orders with them. Had no problems except for price. Their shipping is over the top. Bestbytes U channel works the best out of all I've tried and their the cheapest, so why not go with them?

Happened to find them searching for u channel and was actually interested in some of their billet work.

Thanks for the input and the links!
