disassemble all the parts



since i dont dremel tool for cutting the window, i went to find for cut service but end up terrible wrong.
worst thing happened was that he cut the side panel too near to the edge, jus see the photo u will understand.
the over enlarge side panel cant use anyway due to blockages so i decide to scrape it and replaced it with acrylic sheet.
acrylic sheet is real cheap and i dont have to wait and pay the replacement.


acrylic sheet 3mm for top and side panel



drill holes into the chassis


stainless steel thumb nut for acrylic mount



recycle side panel filter and mod it for psu
