    I'm looking into buying the full atx with integrated psu from thelaserhive (seen here: http://www.thelaserhive.com/product...th-standard-or-deluxe-tray=With+Standard+Tray )

    I was thinking, instead of screwing the back into the mesh, I was thinking about cutting the back to fit the outline of the back plate and jb weld it from the edges.

    then, I would use Rickyreall84's technique he used to remove the front cd hole ( seen here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/rickyreall84s-g5-noir-et-argent.207885/ )

    I was also wondering If I could use the technique he used for the holes in thelaserhive backplate ( using two part of the g5 mesh screwed on either side of the case as a guide to drill holes in the backplate's aluminium that match the original pattern)


    How realistic a project like that sound?

    That is a Mountainmod backplate and NOT laserhive. The two are quite different in terms of size (and so fit).
    With Laserhive, more of the case will need to be cut (as the backplate is larger) and will most likely need reinforcement internally to support JB weld.
