Default Grill/Vent/Fans for Single 5.25" Bay for Air Intake

I want to improve the airflow circulation in my case by adding a grill/vent with fans (40mm?) to a single 5.25" bay. The problem is, I'm not able to find one.

It needs to be black. It needs to cover a single 5.25" bay slot. I don't have a lian-li case. Any thoughts?

well, you could always get the solid ones that come with the case and either cut the entire center out, then you could replace it with mesh possibly (modders mesh). you could cut it with a dremel

40mm fans seem hard to find. maybe 80mm would be the best route
