Good stuff vercomtech! I like the use of CM gear and the green is sick! +rep

I had this lined up as the next POTW and will be my last as I Officially hand over the reins to the thread back to it's rightful owner, General Enigma8750. Welcome back Enigma8750 and try not to get booted again;)biggrin.gif

Thank you for the kind words and the +rep!

Have decided to go with the solid replacement window as opposed to buying a solid panel and cutting it. Where are you guys getting your windows from and are they decently priced?

i have a couple question for those of you that have put a 2000 rpm fan in the stock plexi window of the Scout

Did it make a whistling or buzzing sound?

i recently purchased a Scout and installed some R4's in the side window and it made a horrific sound that could be heard in the front of my house while dogs are barking and tv's blaring

after talking with a few people that have some knowledge on how air flows...they determind that the speed at which the fans were sucking air in over the "T" shaped "fins" on the plexi window was causing the sound

since i couldnt deal with having the fans in the window making that sound im having or at least attempting to have a side window made hopefully with some 1/4" hexagonal or round holes

and the last question...if having my custom window made falls through...is there any place i can buy a window with holes cut already and ready to accept mounting of 2 side fans?

Yes the slits make a horrible sound as the air moves over them. An agreed and much bemoaned sucky design on CM's part. For your last question as far as we know there is no place to purchase a replacement window with holes or without for that matter in a retail environment. I do make solid clear replacement windows, but not wanting to invest in the substantial cost of a hole saw, I don't offer them ready to accept fans.

Thanks for the reply

its awesome knowing it wasnt just me and that its a screw up on CMs part

yeah my brother works at a place that has a laser cutting machine as well as a cnc machine....so ive been waiting for them to make my window but they have been swamped with work on the laser cutting machine...but im told that that machine can cut pretty much any design i could think up for a side window...so i went with a 1/4' hex or round hole with a 9/32 staggering...from my understanding that should provide enough air flow without having the craziness of the "fins" on the stock side window
