I used tracing paper to make a template for it and then used an x-acto knife to cut it out. You can get sample pieces from car wrapping places really cheap which are plenty big enough for what you want to do.

I will be uploading videos of all of this to my YouTube channel over the next few weeks so feel free to subscribe to that to keep up to date with all of them thumb.gif

With how dangerous power supplies are I don't think I am going to be opening mine up. How much did all the sleeving cost you?

okay suit yourself but theyre really not too bad so long as you are sensible and obviously don't leave it plugged in!

For the paracord sleeving it cost me £15 for paracord, £10 for removal tools and £1 for heatshrink which I didn't use in the end! I'm not sure what this converts to in USD but the paracord I used was Javelin blue from Wild Elk which is a US company.

Thank you for all your help!'

Tonight I might prep some more and buy some stuff.

I need a blue cable sleeving kit that will be enough to do a power supply and some case cables. It would be nicer if I could buy it on Amazon. Anybody know any products?

Update:

I have updated the OP and added more mods that I want to do. Last night I disassembled the front header so I can sleeve then when I buy the sleeving. There won't be many updates until the weekend. I will be painting it this weekend though.

Subbed. I've also got a HAF 912 and have been considering many of the same mods - specifically adding some lighting, painting the interior black, adding a window, and adding rubber grommets.

Here's my question for you: Are you going to make your own grommets? From what I've read, the ones for the HAF X and HAF XM don't fit the holes in the 912.

For myself, I don't have any tools or space to do major mods so for the window I'd probably simply buy the windowed door from the 912 Plus on CM's website. How did you add your window?

Today I made the front mesh that is going to replace the stock front mesh. All I need to do now is paint it black.



Here is the piece of metal mesh that I had.


The original mesh on the new mesh.




The new mesh cut out.


The new mesh trimmed up and slots cut in it.


The new mesh all cut in the front panel.

I have no clue what I am going to do for the grommets yet. That's going to be one of the mods I do later on once my system is built again.

For the side panel I cut out the hole with a jigsaw using a metal cutting blade (Although a dremel would work too) and then I did the same thing with the arcylic. Right now it is being held on with tape but I will bolt it together.

If you are planning on modding I would recommend buying a dremel.

Update:

Well, I wasn't going to, but since I found one I decided I would.



I found a riveter and some rivets so I de riveted my case!










Tomorrow I am going to sand and paint!
