This is a close up to show the detailed work on the filing, drilling, primering and painting. I needed to work hard on each step of the process so the final results would be satisfying. After painting, the only way to start over is to sand and paint again. If for any reason I needed to cut or file the side panel I would have to re-primer the entire panel, sand and paint again.

Another dry-fit with the side panel and the chassis. I was pretty happy with the paint job on the top panel with the masking and the blow-hole turned out pretty good even though no one will see it with the bezel on top. I glued the rivets in just like the other panel

The back side panel turned out pretty good once the rivets were glued in. I found that each of the "eyes" needed to be trimmed back so the panel would fit correctly. I also wanted to leave enough room between the panel & motherboard for concealing wires. Each rivet lined up very well too. If I had more money, other optional ideas would be to cut a small window in the panel, but you wouldn't see much.
