I finally got some time to make some progress. Here is the res cover and the first layers of the side panels... "layers" because they're going to be three "sandwiched" little stripes of acrylic in which I will be able to slide the window itself!

Hi guys, I've been freaking busy lately and I didn't have time to update worklogs on forums. So here is a very big update!

Completed the supports for sliding side panels:







Strengthen the structure of the mobo tray and created an original vertical GPU mounting using L-Profiles. Also started to route the cables in the back:























And a quick fit test:

Not really, too many cables coming from there. I will probably keep the front I/O where it is and ditch the USB 3.0 since the cable is too big for my tastes
Though the initial idea was to use one or two anti-vandal switch and put them on the feet or between the reservoirs, I still have to decide on that one!
