    Default Need some advice on hiding a small mistake

    I know it looks rough, but I haven't finished filing the edges down, and the case will be repainted. That's not the issue. I need some advice on hiding the substandard cut on the right side of the power supply.

    Find some of the u-channel stuff, order it with the extra deep channel, then epoxy it in place to hide the flaw.

    Or you could make a custom mounting plate for the PSU that would cover it up inside.

    90W PicoATX works just fine, that cut became an air intake, and you can't see the imperfection.

    Agreed with the U-Channel. You could also use rubber lining that is similar, depending on which way you wish to go.
