Just with a power drill and a bit that fit, you just need to drill out the head of the rivet

Thanks for the quick help. By the way, did you have to modify anything else on the HD case other than cutting off the two extra HD bays. I'd like to see where you put in your screws. If that possible to see some pics of where the screws were placed. Again, thanks... :)

I'll see if I can get a couple pics for you tomorrow. The only other thing is removing the fans assembly from the bottom. I also thing it's easier just to get a 2 5.25 bay to 3 3.5 bay adapter rather than reattaching the original cage as it loses it's rigidness.

What would you suggest then for a bay holder? Thanks... :)

Hey Jibz, Just letting you know that I took out the Hot Swappable rack out like you said (by drilling out the rivets). I also did a few other things to make some improvements that I will post later.
