good luck finding some! mailorder is probably your best bet.
So basically, it looks like ...

Black Sheet .080x8x21'' (2)
http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/evg/evg9117.htm

That is a set of two, 8 x 21 sheets at 2mm thickness for $9.59

One of those sets should be plenty for 1 Storm Scout!

Also, Fellow Scouts, the Hobbylinc company there acquires their sets direct from this following Source! --> http://www.evergreenscalemodels.com/index.htm

That source has the product numbers listed for each set and sizes, that you can order from that Hobbylinc website. Note the "evg" number. The 2mm thickness set of 2 sheets has the evg9117 product number... or the 1mm thickness set of 2 sheets has the evg9115 product number.

I have an idea suddenly, in my head...

Use some of these sheets, with a custom balsa-wood frame supporting some sort of cardboard tubing, to create a sort of light weight but sturdy "fan wind tunnel cage" to fit within the Scouts 5.25 bays!

Perhaps, with a little modification, such could also be used to more securely mount a H50/H70 Radiator within such a cage, creating a massively shrouded wind tunnel on either side of the radiator!

That, could be interesting!

I like modding too. My scout is what i call a soft mod so i don't count it, but i have just started on my first real mod. Its just one of my many old computer case that i have lying around. I want to start Modding cases and selling them but unfortunately money is extremely tight. But i have most of the tools i will need (and i also like to think i have the knowledge lol)

Ok, here is the link to order a Set of Three...
Black Sheet .040x8x21'' (3) -- $7.09
http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/evg/evg9115.htm#

These are the 1mm thickness sheets that Evil262 used for his!

You get 3 sheets, for 7.09 .. vs the 2mm x2 sheets for 9.59.

Hobbylinc also has a number of various other Styrene products that might help with Case Modding on our Scouts.

For example, if you want to add a little more rigidity and sturdiness, they have these things...

Angle ABS 1/4'' (4)
https://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/pls/pls90006.htm

Square Rod Styrene 1/4x1/4x10'' (5)
https://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/pls/pls90810.htm

Can probably use something like those to reinforce the edges on PSU shrouds and such!

I am, at the moment, placing an order for 1 set, of the evg9115 .040x8x21 black sheets. Its cheap and comes with 3 sheets, so figure I'll have plenty if I mess up; and I'm adding 1 set of the 1/4" ABS Angle things; which comes with 4 at 24inches... plenty to work with!

Here's another idea! They got these little Styrene Ladder's too... for making model buildings and such. Imagine using one of those on the back of the HDD cage, to help organize the cabling!

I know you were able to reposition it to take care of the problem, but in a situation where that isn't possible you can get an extension cable that will allow you to position the light and the inverter in the optimum positions.

Oh wow! This Hobbylinc company is about a 45 minute drive from me.. Maybe an hours drive at the most. They're just over in the next county from me!

http://www.hobbylinc.com/About_Hobbylinc

Though gah... they're just a wholesale warehouse and don't deal in retail 'walk-in' sales... so I still have to pay for shipping. But I suppose I'll probably get the order a little quicker.

Woo - I managed to secure a steady supply of perforated sheet steel from old cable receivers (they were just throwing them away!). I'll finally be able to shroud my Scout's HDD rack.
