Side-panel (door), on a Haf X...

Is it a tricky job for a glazier?

Plexi is removed, btw

I didn't really get it, why do you want to put glass instead of plexi - but, hey, it's your call... 31.6 lbs is not enough net weight? :D

Getting back to your question, I think a glazier could do it. Actually, you could do it too... A glass cutter is not so expensive and you could find easily a piece of glass to fit your needs. You can find a lot of glass cutting tutorials on YouTube. Just remember: safety first - protect your eyes and hands!

"The lights i use for mod, dont do well with the plexi.." - what do you mean by this? There are several types of plexi (or plexi-like materials) out there...

Mm, its kinda special light...

Some variates of uv, done work with plexi

i think the less expensive solution, is to go for glass..

I also think the result, will be the best for this build..

lexan is better than plexi or glass. it can stand up to anything.

I would say no to Glass. I changed the security window of my 932 with a laser etched custom window. Looks 100x better. Plexi is just fine you just have to be careful with the stuff cause it can and will show scratches in it if you are handling it with a pair of Gorilla mitts. ;)

Oh yes, as many times as my door has fallen over when I've been inside my case doing work on it, I'm glad the window isn't real glass. :o

If you would like a peek, my log is "Welcome to the Darkside in this thread. :cool:

same here ... No glass. too heavy.
Only when I build my custom wood PC desk, then I want a temper glass, may be 1/4 or 3/8 thick.

glass = too fractal and dangerous.
and not easy to drill in if you dont have the right equipment.
and since you have angles too on that plexi you took out.
normal or tempered?
