Dry fit with the rivets. They are going to look great because they are so simple and yet match the theme perfectly. Drilling holes and filing down the vent area was tedious but it should look fine when everything is painted.

Here is a close up of the panel before painting. Remember, the rivets are not glued in yet, but I wanted to get a feel of how they would look and fit.

Modding a back panel is risky because you don't know if anyone will see it. So I decided to do something simple that still enhances the Armor theme. I started by marking out the lines between peices of metal to appear as if the panel was made of three pieces. Then I clamped a metal ruler down across the panel and scored it with a plexi-glass scoring tool. I kept scraping away until it seemed deep enough to look like separate pieces. I also scored a horizontal line for the second & third pieces. After that, I measured the location of each rivet hole and drilled them out. Last I primered and sanded to prepare it for paint.
