I picked up a couple of old towers just to tinker around with, but neither one has a side on it, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with making some type of custom side and how did you mount it? Thank you.

what about the look though, you are gonna have all the metal brackets showing at the top and bottom. Paint those maybe?
