So you see the grommets? In order for them to go in and still be able to have the same size hole for the screws, you need to use a grommet with a larger outer diameter than the original hole. You need to drill the panel to make the grommet fit.

The whole point of this mod is to reduce vibration of the fan and thus noise. I was putting a high RPM fan in there.... something like 3700RPM.... so I really needed this damper in there.

Anyone? deburring? maybe a layer of something on the panel where they touch?
While I'm askin... I was thinking about filling all the holes on the side panel so that i could cut a nice big tattoo style spiderweb starting at the top left corner and putting the lexan behind it. Other than cutting and welding a new piece into it what are you thoughts? Fiberglass bondo? JB Weld? idk

Why not just use something like these? I use em and they seem to TCB. Plus they keep the fans from making direct contact with the case and side panel http://www.jab-tech.com/4-Pack-Anti-...s-pr-3269.html

Let's see here...

I sanded, then primed, 3 bast coats of metallic silver, apply the mat and spray flat black through the mat and then mist the charcoal metallic (same color as the interior) over it.

Thanks for the info. And mo problems on the late post. Im in college and i understand how much of a PITA things can be. But thanks again and +rep for you too.
