    Hey everyone. I want to mod my phantom side panel by putting plastic window in some spots. Any ideas how can I do that without destroying the panel or if there is any website or something i can send my panel to do it for me?

    You can talk to the guys at MNPCTECH.com
    They have a service where you send the panel, and they fit the window.
    Bill Owen, the owner of the site is pretty well known for custom case mods and such.

    Or, of course, you can do it yourself with lots of masking tape, and a dremel tool with a cutoff disk, some U channel molding to cover it up, and either rivets to hold it, or some mounting tape from 3M.
     
    lantonis says thanks.

    I think ill try it my self. I have the tools. Only thing missing is the u-channel plastic to put around the edge of the cut window and a good tape like the tutorial in the website you've sent me. Hope for the best:) thanks for the reply m8

    I just used a jigsaw with a very sharp metal cutting blade. Oh and a Drill to make the entry hole for the saw blade;)

    Yea:) I cant wait to go back home in a couple of months, take my side panel with me and chop chop. Its a shame phantom doesn't have a side window in any spot. But not mine:p
