Default Window for computer case

So I just finished cutting up an old case and now I have a giant hole I'd like to fill. Where can I buy plexiglass/plastic/something to cover it?

Home depot, lowes, rona... it's called acrylic, you want a 1/8" (or 4mm) thick sheet.

The easiest way would probably just buying some heavy-duty 3M double sided tape from Home Depot. It doesn't look quite as nice as some other ways as the acrylic is 1-2mm inside the metal, but it works well and is pretty cheap. You could also drill some holes around the window and then in the acrylic and use nuts/bolts to hold it all together.

you could also use some clear heavyduty glue and just make sure you clean anythying that squishes out when you place it. that way you dont have bolts or tape looking ugly on your case
