so I'm in the process of making an aluminum door so the problem is the design on the door. I'd like to stay with my perforated metal theme but not go over board. so my first idea is two chevrons one over the other upside down, like two "V" one over the other made of the same hole design of my vents. second idea is to do either the lrft or right side of the door same as the vents. last idea would be the entire door like the vents. what do you think?

I like the chevron idea and the entire door mesh idea. I love the "view" when you look through the door so having a hole-y aluminum door would be pretty boss. Not so sure I'd be a fan of the "half n half" but maybe if you did it I'd be converted.

I'm leaning toward the double chevron too. the only reason I wasn't sure about the swiss cheesing the door was it looking like too much mesh.

Hey guys I was thinking of this for my first mod. What do you guys think? How would you recommend I go through with it; cutting wise, what wire type i'll need and how to get it connected through a molex plug.

I hate cutting plastic but I cut my front panel out. Plastic likes to melt when you cut it. So I recommend starting your cuts with a dremel at low speed. Cut your basic shape and use a metal file set to get your desired shape. Very time consuming if you do it right. Sharp edges is where you will have the most trouble. That's honestly one of the hard mods to do to the case in my opinion.

thanks for the input. Yeah I figured that this would be a bit of a challenge. Like you said I was thinking of a way to do it without the plastic melting. Luckily I've got a friend with plenty of tools so I could probably get my hands on a dremel since I don't think theres one laying around my garage. And you are saying use a file on the sharp edges?

+1 Rep for the help evil jerry
