Are you going to put like a side window in?

COmpusa has these case sides for 1$ (new).

Its fro there case but for that 1$ you get the plexiglass and mounting hardware.

I used one for my first mod

I have two sheets of acryllic on order, 48" x 48" of yellow for this one and blue for my 900. Got it from US Plastics for 25 bucks each. But yeah, I am going to add a window eventually. My nibbler needs replacing also, and i have about 30 feet of window trim.

If you want to do my suggestion just go to compusa and ask for "side panel"

or do your idea

iampoor, we have no COMPUSA in my neck of the woods, if I was back home, it would be easy because COMPUSA is across teh street from my parents house.

So the only other thing I have a question about, since I have never done this, does the paint always feel sticky to the touch or is it because there is such high humidity here? I have let the coats on there dry for about 30 hours now and it still feels sticky. Do I need to do 2 or 3 coats of clear coat and then sand that down a little to take the stick out?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. <3

The stickiness is normal...it just hasn't fully cured yet.

If can take several days, and in high-humidity areas it can take a week or more.

If you have not already read this, Here is a good link on painting.
