    Check automotive stores. My last case used lots of chrome window molding (which looked realy sweet), and it nicely covered up the piss poor job I did in cutting the window and fan holes (little recommendation on using molding w/ fan holes: fan screws suck, go for machine bolts w/ nuts; 3/16" diameter, 1 1/2" shaft works best (4.75mm x 38mm)). Getting back on track....the molding was 1/4"/8.6mm thick, and provided the cut isn't too rough, it slips over sheet metal fairly easily (just take your time with it and use something like a screwdriver to wedge it; forcing it in place will scratch it up, which makes it look so un-1337).

    yah, i use my window molding and it looks nice, but i dont think i can stick my plexi on with silicon due to the fact one part of my molding sticks out cuz of a curve on my design
