Default Fan Mod

I'm trying to make that fan mod that Shumway suggested, where you put the fan in the panel of a shoebox, then you stick it in the PCI slot. so far im good, but now i dunno how to stick the panel to that.......metal thing that screws on to the slots ( not PCI, the one on the side). im using the metal cover that came with the case, but idunno how to stick it on to the "PCI" fan, should i use glue?

I used super glue to stick the pci bracket to a case fan if thats what you mean. You have to leave it for about 2 hours tho. I didnt use a shoebox though so you might be on about sumthing completely different
