I will be calling this project the "Corsair 900D WWII Bomber Military Case Mod" we will be customizing the WWII Memphis Belle Bomber Military Case Mod into something special and added the "T2" touch to this new project.

In case you missed it, on Memorial Day Bill Owen posted Corsair 900D WWII Memphis Belle Bomber Military Case Mod Guide to hand off the Dremel to Anthony Reynolds AKA THRASHER2

I was trying to finger out how to level out the front panel for the 3/16 metal piece.
It came to me! I can use some green acrylic panels for the sides I had laying around the Mod Garage.

I went to the local homedepot to try to find the rivets that were already used on the Bomber before and this is the closest I found.

I will use these bolts to hold the Front Metal Panel to the front of the case.

Thanks for posting - I look forward to seeing the final product.

From those first few pictures, I wasn't sure if you were working in a garage or a crime scene! :P
