Open mesh or drilled drive bay cover, black

Does anyone have any of these? I'm after both 5.25" and 3.5", one of each and preferably from the same case/manufacturer so that they are matching. Or just a 5.25" one will do. The Lian Li BZ-501 or similar would be ideal. There's a small donation via PayPal if someone can help.

Oh, yeah - how the fk does one add an attachment in ones post???

  1. Thanks for the link pal. I already looked at CM and several others, but not in the US.

    Cheers ;-)
  2. As a last resort, you can try making your own. Use perforated sheet metal with the right holes and spacing.

    I have done stuff like this by clamping it in a vise and then using a steel chisel to cut out pieces by chiseling. Then do seaming and forming, and finally painting flat black (or semi flat).
  3. Yeah I could do that, I'm very good at fabricating things, but TBH for what a new item will cost I just can't be arsed with the messing.

    Agree! That's why I qualified what I recommended by saying "as a last resort"
  5. Haha, yeah, I sort of didn't log that on!

    DEFINITELY as a last resort.

    But I do like the look of the one you linked, just registered and tried to go through the order process but can't get past the shipping stage, so I don't know how much it would cost to send a 4 dollar item to the UK - almost guarantee it will be much more than the cost of the cover...

    You got that right mate!
    The CM store will ship me a $25 part from the US to Canada for just over $21 lol!

    $12 Lian Li BZ-501 5.25" Mesh Bay Cover w/ Filter - Black (also in white, or red)

    Frozen will ship international. I had a case shipped to me in Germany, only prob I had was S&H ($90, then the case was ~30lb).
  8. Yeah cheers guys, that's the product but ones in the US and the other is x4 when I only want 1. when you think of it this spares/extras/replacements malarkey is a bit of a con - we either get ripped with the item price, ripped with the postage, or sometimes both.
    TBH I thought I would have had loads of offers, there must bre plenty of people with original cases that have installed fans/controllers etc. in their spare bays.

    Anyone else in the UK want one of 4 of these covers? ;-)
  9. Marvellous - those on Amazon UK are located in Germany... FFS

  11. Yep, marvellous...
    But, at times, a PITA
  12. Still looking for this....
