Drilling on a black wrinkle finish?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright im thinking of buying this http://www.mountainmods.com/u2ufo-replacement-front-panel-p-503.html in the triple 360 version. Because I have no use for opticals so why not get mor fans and possibly more radiator mounting places. But there is one problem the it dosent have any place for a on off switch. So would it be alright if I drilled holes on the side panel even if it had a Black Wrinkle finish on it? Obviously I dont want any cracks etc. If its alright what percausions should I take such as taping up that area?
Thanks wink.gif

Tape it, center punch your hole, and work your way up a few drill sizes at a time. Starter hole at 1/8". And must buttons will have a little shoulder to hide the edge of the cut, but it's not huge.

What I was thinking was tape it and start out with a 1/8 inch drill head like u said but then use sand paper instead of slowly using larger drill heads. This would basicly gurantee now cracking or bad things in general would not happen thumb.gif Yes it would be time consuming but I dont think that bad.

See if you can find a small tapered reamer. It'd shear the edges of the hole until it's the right size. No sure if they make them that small though...
