as aspire recommended,

atleast get a dremel, $40 @ lowes for the cheap one like i got (cordless /w recharger and a bunch of fittings)

then all you would need is a jigsaw (somebody has to have one near you)

get a sheet of plexi glass at your local hardware store, thinkness really doesnt matter, so go thin , just make sure its still sturdy.

my 8x10 sheet only costed $1.50 to give you an idea. i wanted bigger, but they were sold out on the size i wanted.

then grab some double sided tape ($5) ,...get the good stuff

window mod is fun, and you will like your case that much more after its completed.

dont forget the trim tho.
i forgot it while in the process, so instead of waiting a week for some to come in the mail, i grabbed some door trim @ local auto parts shop (pep boys or advnaced, ect)
that did the trick.

conclusion of items needed:
painters tape or masking tape (either or, doesnt matter)
a pen or pencil
a dremel
a jig saw
some double sided tape
some trim (be sure you have enough length)
and some "alone time" lol

****, my garage is so cluttered, i used a milk crate as my cutting table.

my window mod

Do not get a cordless deremel.

I picked up a Kawasaki rotary tool, compatible with all dremel accessories, just cheaper.

Paid something like $40 shipped with a 200 piece bit set.
