I have an old Cheiftec case. and i have a question about the panel.

I bought my cheiftec maybe 6 years ago. its just an alum case thats flat black. and the panels are all painted in a flat black color as well.

But the problem is that my side window has a window in it with a fan also attached to it.. I want the computer looking stealth and have nothing showing off on the inside. So is there some place i can purchase the same exact flat black side window thats aluminum BUT with no plexi glass window in it?

heres my case... but in black:

and i want it to look like this with out the window:

I know you can still get the windowed side panels off a few retailers. Try asking them if they have a non-windowed one around.

Alternatively ebay is your best bet, although you may need to buy an entire case.

If you're interested in doing some modding, paint the case.
Paint the window too and you'll just have a cool window-shaped design in the side panel.
Otherwise if you can find a color to match the existing paintjob, then just take the window off (or mask it) and paint it.
But I hope the trade works out.
