Default Chenming Case Mod Problem

Well, heres the back:


and I want to add 2x 80mm fans with the crome grills i got. So the purple "easy holding things" got to go. Then I run into the issue of the weird hole arrangement. After I cut the part sticking out off "stock grill" theres no way to drill holes that would work.

So I though if this


The red is plexiglass mounted to the back of the case. Then i would drille my 80mm holes and screw holes.


Would that work?

Just make sure you have a way to mount the plexy to the case, then to drill the holes for the fan and the fans screw holes....

It would look neater if you could put the Plexi on the inside when mounting. From the looks of it the fan holes are rounded outward.
