Step one:

I started off measuring the sides of my case to an 1/8th of an inch.  I measured all the tab holes so I would know where to make the tabs and I also moved them a 1/4 inch so I will be able to slide the side into place later.  The panel is going to be 16 inches by 17 inches and I am going to bend the edges in for support like real panels. This means I have to ad an extra 1/2 or so to each edge and will need to score and bend them.

Here are the measured notches I will be cutting out and bending to fit the holes in the case. They basicly act as a wedge to keep the sides fitting tightly against the case.  They will be filed down and adjusted accordingly to fit the holes perfectly.
