Default P182 Window mod

So I just did my first window mod...I wanted it to look professional so was tempted to go to a service, but I'm a DIY guy and wanted to learn how to do it.

Here are the results, I'm pleased with how it turned out actually. Can't see much inside the case yet because one of my cathodes blew out, need to replace them. You can only see a little tiny glow and my X-FI power light.

I used a jigsaw...for straight cuts like window cutting I thought it would be easier and faster...and it was quite easy actually.

Looks beautiful man, good choice with the dark tint.

Edit: I should replace my window with a dark tinted one like yours.
