Hey guys....got some progress on my build.
I wanted an ac ryan type mirror panel and got to thinking if some window tint would work that would allow me to see in the case when the lights are on but the window be black and not transparent when the lights are off. I also moved the side CCFL to the top. I might make a how to article on how to create an ac ryan type window w/ window tint. Anyway here are the pics....
Window taken off
Window tint film - 20% transmittance, best quality
Cut out smaller shape to make it easier to work with
Half a cup of water with two tablespoons dish soap
Spray soap on window. Remove adhesive backing and spray on tint film too.
Work out air bubbles with hard card
Perfect...no bubbles. Let dry. If you get bubble use heat iron or blow dryer to "shrink" them out.

Moved CCFL to Top
I think I need to add another light to light up the middle section of the case.
Let me know what you think.
