Alrighty! Installed the window in the side panel. The window is 1/8" cast acrylic. I threaded the window for 6/32 stainless steel socket head machined screws.

Hmm, not really sure I'm feeling the window grill thingy. Great craftsmanship no doubt; I just think the white stands out a bit too much on the red.

I'm happy you mention it because it's 2 days I want to talk about it. it's not consistant with the rest of the great work.

I can't tell from the pics, is the white also pearled like the red or is it just high gloss? That's mostly what's getting me. It looks great, and it's work I could never accomplish myself so I apologize if i am detracting, and I do appreciate the effort into a HWC case... I guess I would have just done the whole thing red...

I think somewhere in this thread the OP said he likes high contrast colours. Although I do agree the white is a littler to high contrast maybe black would be better?
Anyway excellent work and awesome looking case.

You guys are amazing... it's a theme case based around canadians and hardware canucks.
Digikid: if you paint the screws they will chip either when you install them or when you try to remove them AND the hexdriver wouldn't fit correctly... therefore you could never get those things tightend down correctly without ruining the paint on your beloved screws. It's like 90 percent of the cases with windows they all have silver colored rivets or screws.

It's mind boggling to me that people here still find a reason to complain when there is maybe 2 people on this entire forum that have the resources and tools to even BUILD something like this on their own. I don't know bill from a hole in the ground but some of your posts are not only childish but unthoughtful. It's his time and his money... remember that.


Oh! Keep up the great work Bill I really like how its turning out.
