Window Mod

Recommended Posts

How do i fasten a window to my case? I really don't want to use a locking strip if i don't have to. Would double sided tape do the job or would i have to use a different method? Thanks for your help.

the double sidded modling works great...but other options are rivits, bolts, screws any kind of htign like that can have a dramatic effect on it...but thier are strong glues u coudl also use...double sided tape is rather iffy...try it but i don't think the results will be very promising....go to a hardware store and by some heavy duty bonding glue made to hold 3 ton beems over nice cars in advertisments ;)

yes I've used double sided tape on lots of cheap mods I've dont for friends, the only thing is it it dosn't look as pretty from the inside. so I use nuts and bolts on mine. nice and clean.

I used double-sided squares that you use for securing key holders to walls or other things. You'll probably have to layer them to get the right thickness. They've worked well for a month now and the window is still there! lmao.

Double sided tape is usually used to hang pictures up or glue two things together. Some hsf's come with some... Question: how do you put rivets into a case? Also how will you go about inserting screws into the case if you go that route? I tried using epoxy and it didn't hold at all... I'm not too sure if its the c strip molding that I have that's blocking me from putting on the plexi glass, but everything i've tried failed (epoxy and cement). My case is steel if that helps...
