Hello to all, well it has taken me a few days through work etc, but I think I just kinda completed my first case mod.....this after I was told by a pro that a top window for this case could not be done.....please let know what u think....I am new to this, but this is what I wanted.

Case being prepped

Rear exhaust mesh cut out

That looks like a nearly perfect window mod to me. I also really like the top window as well. Props!

Thanks for the kind words. It was my first as I say so I have made some mistakes with it when cutting etc, but won't do it again ;-)

Wow, I guess I just haven't seen too many top window mods, because that looks nostalgic. Seriously in love with that top window, nice job dude, looks sick! thumb.gif
