So as the title reads I was moving to a new place and a glass that was on a fridge next to my computer fell on it and the side panel broke in about the way one would expect a big sheet of tempered glass to break. I wound up searching a bit on replacing it and I saw a thread that mentioned someone getting a replacement from EVGA which is all fine and dandy but I also saw a post by Gone Cruising where he had made some custom panels. I was going to message him and ask about possibly commissioning something from him but my account doesn't have enough posts to send a pm yet. Also if anyone knows of any other options in terms of non stock side panels I would be interested to hear them. I'm not super thrilled that the side of my pc got swept up with a broom and dustpan but now seems like it could be a good opportunity to do something interesting. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I PM'd Gone Cruising for you, maybe he'll reply sometime soon.
     
    You could maybe take the panel to a glass place and have them custom cut/install a new window in it for you..Probably be your best bet.

    Oh hey Gone Cruising, I saw your post where you made acrylic side panels for your DG-77 and was wondering if you could maybe make a set for my DG-76 since I liked the looks of your work. I of course would provide compensation for this if you are willing to do it. I'm wondering if there are any other options for the acrylic other than just straight clear also, that being said if clear is the only option I thought the clear panels looked pretty nice. I remember seeing something once where one way mirrored paneling was used once and if something like that is possible I would be very much interested in that.

    Can do acrylic in any color or style. I'll look up the cost on the one way mirrored later today and get back to you.

    What panels did you want to have made? Left, right, front or all?

    I'm on vacation this week so I'm trying to look prices up without being yelled at by the wife, lol!

    Hahaha all good, I just would like the front panel and left side panel replaced. So the two panels that come as tempered glass by default with the case.
