Temporary screws to hold everything in place before I get shorter ones. Wing nuts don't hold everything together tight enough, so I'll those will just some regular nuts. The new bolts will also be countersunk, with the nuts on the inside, for a more cosmetically pleasing look.
Here's some accessory pics:
Here's just a basic overview of what the inside will look like, minus the outside plexi, radiator, fan grills, psu... etc. Just an idea.
