I would like to add some handles to my corsair 550d. I am not sure if I can because the top is plastic. This is the case




Maybe just one of these up front top would be enough for my needs. Just enough to give me something to grab.


These might be a nicer option.


I am mostly worried about the top being a rigid plastic, but still plastic.

so drill though the plastic and use long bolts to secure it to the drive cage/bottom with large washers on either end
might need to use threaded rod if u can't get bolts long enough
