Performance PC's has started selling the side panel for $24.99

They even sell a precut side panel without the fan but the catch is you have to buy the case with it for $169.95

04July10 Update

Removed the front and top chrome strips and will paint them red.
I was surprised how easy the were to remove, just using a flat tip screwdriver and prying the tabs just enough that you can push down and they pop right out.

I had to remove the mesh since the paint chipped, nothing noticeable but the minor things bug me so they are all in my garage now waiting for some clear coat, something I should of done the first time :P

I think the best way to avoid scratches will be to insert the mesh first then the strips... yeah.
