    This is what im planning to do with midplate
    [​IMG]

    Ideas for how the midplate is going to be cut?
    I was just thinking drilling holes all next to eachother and then dremelling the little curves left off?

    Any better/other suggestions?

    Nope, I'm not too sure how to describe it, unlike some double sided tapes that are "foam-like" and generally break up, this is almost silicone like and holds itself together very well.

    Im guessing you got a pretty thin one so it doesnt push the radstand along with the fans and rad too far out of alignment with the tj07 side grill

    It was probably ~1mm thick, without stretching it.

    Jigsaw with a high speed steel blade and mask it all up. Ii you want it to be round at the ends do those first with the hole saw and then cut the straights.

    Stick with your idea of drilling a series of holes, but just use a file to clean up the leftover bits. Also make sure you centre punch the holes, that way you don't have to worry about the drill bit running away from where you're trying to drill.
