    Adding A Custom Case Window

    Once you get the measuring done and drawn, its time to get the cutting on. On this case, my first step was to cut out the vents at the bottom of the case, as they are a hard part to cut.

    Then I just took my time and cut the rest of the arch out. I used a dremel for it, as that is my preferred modding tool. A jigsaw would have been just as good for this type of cut, though. The final cut out looked like this.

    The next step is one some people don't agree with me on. I personally don't think that the plexi inside the case has to be even remotely close to the shape or size of the window cut out. A number, though, think it should. I generally hate working plexi, as it's a pain in the butt to cut. Here's about how I have it look when I cut it out.
