First, a few notes:

1) I proudly own a Xigmatek Elysium which I love very much.

2) I am less than thrilled with the side panel's mounting hardware.

Therefore, I've decided to change it to swing open on a hinge. If I can, I'll get really fancy and put a dual-position piston in, allowing me to click it shut or lock it ~90 degrees open, with a pin to swing it open further.

I'm really hoping to find someone who's done hinge mods on a case, I've never modded things before :O (unless pulling the front door off an old apevia counts, which I doubt

)

Tips, tricks and suggestions VERY welcome!

edit: in case you don't know the case, a pic! not mine, but pretty close (mine's got a window, check my sig build log for pics of it)

I was thinking about making a Lamborghini case and doing that like a Lamborghini door. Good luck man! It'll look sick when it's done I bet xD
