    never mod on 1200 yet but did work on P180 and others.


    You have two options
    1. do two windows; just remove the stock gill mesh and replace it with acrylic
    2. one uniwindow
    since stock window is bolted on so you have to do bolt on style but this will be a little more work and harder, second you much have Die&Tap tools to thread the acrylic. I think it's best to use two sided tape, 3M type. You can find all the materials at HomeDepot, you should get the acrylic sheet at least 1/8" thick for stability.

    Anyway here are the links for you.

    Its easy. All you need to do is tape the side of the panel with masking tape. Draw your outline. Use a jig saw or dremmel to cut your pattern. Use a file to make it perfectly strait. Home depot sells plexi glass. Make sure you do not cut the new pattern larger than plexi you but. 3M makes double face padded tape. put a 3 inch strip every now and there, put plexi on. I did my Zalman GS1000 and it turnes out great. I also bought trim for it. If you wanna just replace mesh, use Detons advise. Cut plexi slightly larger and use 3M double face padded tape on inside.

    BTW, forgot to mention if you don't want to use the edge trim as DrDeath mentioned or like in the worklog links, you can use a black marker to color up the edges.

    the edges, you have to get it from PerformancePcs or FrozenCPU...etc., the small flexible one, this why I give you the option to use marker if you don't want to spend money on them.

    Frozen PC. You need to square corners and cut a mitre or a large curve radius. A small curve radius is tough to install molding.
