    @ Fingers77, I haven't messed with PVC that far yet, but you can sand it. I heard there is a PVC polish on the market, but haven't research it, cause the only color choices we can find locally is either Off-White or Grey, so I've opted for painting it.

    @Razarach,Thanks for tuning in and commenting!

    @The boy 4rm oz, really?! thanks dude :D

    @Colossous, thanks Rich!

    Onto the Top panel.... "More AIR FLOW, ..It's a Good Thing" ..and less airflow noise too.. and I think Honeycomb Modders Mesh fits the overall Industrial theme I'm creating.

    I used a Needle Nose Plier to pull back the factory grill tabs.

    Cut the cornwers with the Timn Snip, so you can flatten the factory grill, for tracing template

    Rubber Mallet to lightly tap the HC mesh around the perimeter of the frame. Be careful to not break off the 2 plastic "latch" tabs protruding beneath the frame of the factory top grill.

    Corsair perforated top grill Vs. Honeycomb Modders Mesh ( (79% airflow) 22 gauge plain steel, 1/4" hexagon holes with 9/32" staggered centers)

    Red Paint Pen to trace outline onto the Honeycomb

    Using Tin Snip to cut Mesh... excess will be cut after the mesh is folded onto the frame, btw: It's 22 gauge steel, it's stronger than it looks here.

    Rough concept! ...Make 1" wide? ...frame from 3/16" thick aluminum?, use 10/32 socket head screws to fasten Honeycomb mesh in place... I'm still debating

    Sweet idea Bill. I'm sure the aluminum frame will look good.

    The new mesh looks a ton better Bill. Personally I think you should remove some of those plastic ribs as well. If you were to remove the 4 horizontal moving strips you would still retain most of the support and rigidity whilst improving airflow and IMO improving looks. Just my 2 cents though Bill.

    A vast improvement mesh wise :thumb:

    But I agree maybe you could lose some of the ribs???

    Looking good and I think the alu frame will underline the industrial look more than without.

    I love the industrial theme, socket heads, metal, steel, all that good stuff.

    Looking amazing man, keep at it.

    It does look a helluva a lot better. Next task is frame work over it.
