case modding, what to use for side panel?


well I am modding this case:

http://lian-li.com/product/product06...index=8&type=b

I am going to be cutting the side panel and putting a clear window in. What kind of material should I use for this clear window? Plexi? acrylic? I might rivet it down, but not sure if i'm gnna use tape. What would you guys suggest?

Has anyone done any case modding that would know the answer? I know to use plexi, but not sure on the thickness. Well I'll look around more.
