Hello everyone, I'm writing from Italy and I apologize for my bad English ....

I made a transparent window for the Cosmos II .....

many have done it but I hope you enjoy my work, I also made ​​a quick disconnect connector for the fan located on the panel, all without having cables dangling and without having to use your hands to disconnect the two fans ... . closing the panel, the fans are connected and running, opening the panel will disconnect the fans and you can directly remove the panel ....

here are the pictures of my work....

this is the panel in origin..
