Default Case Modding

I tried looking at different sites, MNPCTech, performance-pcs, frozen-cpu.

What I want to do, is put maybe a mesh siding on this panel instead of the 230mm fan window on the side. I no longer want the fan on there, and the window looks ugly without it. Here's the pics:






So the window is 100% removable. I see they didn't use any tape... Couldn't find any mesh "sheet". So what exactly do I need? This is from my Aerocool Zero Degree.

I would like a black one, which MNPCTech doesn't have.

Edit: There a difference between HEX, Diamond, Round, Maltese, and Slot?

I see diamond and round, but what are the others?

Black spray paint?
The Maltese looks like the Maltese cross cut out on the sheet metal.

The hexagon one is similar to the one used on the back (IO Panel) side of the Antec 300.

Update: Finally finished this. I just didn't want to bother with it for a time. But, now it is done.



I used a type of fencing, not chicken fence, but something stronger. Looks somewhat natural.

Very nice. Where did you get the fencing? I like that.

Did you intentionally curve it like that?

I had it in my garage. I just found it maybe a week ago. It took a heck lot of work cutting that thing. I didn't have a table saw or anything. Had to do it with wire cutters.

It was naturally curved. Think was previously part of a rolled set. But I just had a sheet of it.
