Notching - using a small metal saw to cut out the pre-measured notches.  Measure over and over to get it right. I actually made a big mistake with the notches the first time. I forgot to offset the notches so the panels could slide in to the holes on the case.  A little improvising fixed that one.  The clamps came in very handy because they held the metal down while I cut.  Make sure to invest in some clamps!  You will never regret it.
