Getting Close on the Copper window frame. I had to build a holder so I could square up the inside of the window frame. This Cheapskate sanding strip trick really works great!! I had a little trouble at first because the sanding grit wasn't ruff enough. Long straight edges is just what I needed ! It is a little bit of a workout but hey people pay for monthly memberships to get that.





Ya I know it's not a titan, But that's how I learn ! from seeing how other people deal with modifications. Most people show a before and after picture. I want to know how they got from A to B. So I show a lot of the in between, so maybe it might help someone trying to do something similar.

I got the window frame finished and polished up to the level that I was looking for. I seemed to have made this considerably more difficult than it should have been! When you don't have the proper tools for a given job it becomes much more time consuming.











Trying to get some of the deeper scratches out of the copper took a lot of work! You have to use a coarser grit cloth and when you think you have the bad stuff gone, you work to finer grits. But once it started to get smooth I still had to many unacceptable fine scratches. This caused me to repeat the cycle multiple times to get where I wanted to be.













I have some unique mesh that I intend to use around the drive bays and the mother board, along with some black Acrylic.
It is somewhat similar to the grill mesh in the 900D but just a little different. I have a plan for multiple layers with opposing colors, but I'll have to see how it looks. You know how it goes with the best laid plans of mice and men.






Sam Has been pushing me to make the main window emblem from copper like I did on the front one. I wanted to take the easy way out, But what fun would that be? If you want something special then you have to go that extra mile, so I'll give it a go. I have some other stuff to do first! I would really like to settle out the diamond plate so I can mount the front emblem and get this thing looking like it's supposed to look.



CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality



Still waiting for more parts from Corsair and EKWB and then I can start working on the inside also.

Thanks to everyone for following our build and for ssgtnubb for cracking the whip on me. I didn't know how it went around here and I won't bug you unless I have some progress to show! Glad to be here and thanks for the support.

A lot of 900D owners have been asking for clear windows, because the smoked black factory windows put off very strong reflections and make it hard to see Inside. Luckily as modders we have the ability to do something about it.







This only took about an hour because I was able to order the Cast Acrylic cut to side for less than the Dremel wheels would have cost to cut it. The main problem with doing this is that the 900D factory window screws down on male standoffs on the inside of the frame. So it is necessary to drill the holes extremely close to the edge of the glass. I had already consigned myself to the fact that I was going to crack it. The closest holes are about 1/2 the distance to the edge as the ones in picture below. You just don't want to drill that close to the edge because it cracks.










Luckily that didn't happen! I used Brad point drill bits and graduated through three sizes to get the hole I wanted and then did just a little hand filing to align the holes. This clear Acrylic is 3/16" thick which is what I would recommend to the people who try this. I have another piece of 1/8" in a lite bronze color and I'm less confident I won't crack it and I'll have to pull some shenanigans to attach it because it is thinner, but it only comes in that thickness and they won't cut it to size for you. I think I'll drill all the holes first and then cut it to size and maybe I can avoid cracking it?





You will notice that clear glass gives off a strong reflection also. It really depends on how the light is in you room. Also I don't have any components in the case to show how it will really look.
