    had a look, they have a cnc window cut service but i was looking for a simple kit with some perspex you do yourself, might just have to order some perspex and take it into work

    You could try here for a ready made kit -

    The only problem with these kits is that sometimes the rubber edging is very thick and can be tricky to fit.
    You could try and do your own window,just cut the shape you require with a jigsaw and then use some U moulding for round the edges and fit a clear piece of plexi to the rear.That is how I done my window mod on my old case.

    EDIT: I added a couple of pics of mine.One with the window cut out of the panel and another of the window with the clear plexi added.

    you don't need to pay extra for a "kit"

    head over to your local hardware store, have them cut a piece of plexi for you. Then you have a couple of options to mount it.

    One is to make the plexi glass oversized, and epoxy it to the inside wall of the case. Use some automotive trim around the hole.

    Another is to cut the window to size- then use a double "U" trim to hold it in place.
