    Trying to find little metal thingys to join two fans side by side like this at the bottom.

    Seen stuff like that over the years but never for sale. No idea if there's a real word for them. Those are called "logo plates" according to the manual for the cooler which is no help. Some of the other ones I've seen have wrapped around the depth of the fans to connect top and bottom screw holes, but either would do.

    Make your own?
    It's just a little piece of metal with two holes drilled through it.
    You could make one out of a small piece of plastic too.
    Shouldn't be too hard to make it look nice (ie. not ghetto. lol)

    The hardware store sells aluminum bars by the screen doors. You could make one with it and polish it up real nice

    ... or paint it black so it was barely noticable.
