It's not terrible. I would, like somebody mentioned, paint it black like the rest of the case; as well as the rivets (or screws?) that you used to fasten it.

If you want a rip: Nice hack job, next time use some guides and round your corners. Also, who makes a square window? If you're cutting it you might as well make a cool design, like pedo bear!

you guys are insane. taste, thats horrid. it looks like you cut the side out with a dull butter knife. or maybe had a rat chew out a rectangle. you should spend 40 bucks and buy a centurion or something, and run that monstrosity over with a tractor.

i think he did a decent enough job for a first mod... and with a chronic old case... you gotta give him some credit... he got an old OEM lookin case to look likes its half-pimp, and it has the added function of a vent...

although i do agree you should paint those screws at least... i'd paint the whole thing a nice flat black

i know but if he used a angle grinder then the cut should have been straight. i mean how hard is it to use a angle grinder? i cut a panel window in my OEM looking case when it was half dark out side and i couldnt see. mine turned out straight.
