"When you are done cutting and piercing, mounting the window is a snap."

The Plexiglas is blue here because when you buy this stuff it comes with a thin plastic cover, this is protect it from scratches. I recommend taking it off only once you are done working with your window. The picture is not very clear but you can see the marks I did. Be careful when cutting or piercing this stuff. Make sure to go slow, this will prevent it from melting. It's not as hard as metal so go easy on it. Doing my first hole, I put too mush pressure on the Plexiglas so it broke. Fortunately it's in a corner so you can't see it when the window is installed. After doing all those holes in metal, you get use to apply a lot of pressure on your drill. Not good in this case. The trick when working with Plexiglas is to be smooth.

When you are done cutting and piercing, mounting the window is a snap. Just put it where it belong and screw it in place. Be careful not to over tight the bolts on the screws, this could break your Plexiglas.

That's it for part 1. In the next part, I'll show you how to mount a second power supply in that case, how to optimize the fans bays witch are there by default on your case and we will finally paint this baby. Until then, please fell free to send me any questions, comments or suggestions you may have.

Special thanks go out to Nerdsbyte for supplying me with all this nice equipment.
