Yeah, the Inspired Laser Designs plastic 80mm computer fan grill material is about 1/8" thick and no way could you use the stock HFM holder with them. The depth is actually exactly right for the HFM undercut and look good IMO.

 

As stated, the tabs are trimmed and press fit in place.  Hold extremely well, as I've sent a friend's HE-6 across the country via UPS with them in place after I did the mod for him and no movement.

Same here, they fit snugly without movement.

I used a hacksaw to trim them initially, then a couple files (rough, then finer) to reduce and shape them.  With those tools, it's quite easy.  Prior to the hacksaw I tried a couple three knives, but it was painfully slow.  If you measure first, then mark (with a knife or whatever), you can avoid cutting off too much of the tabs.

Simple.  I used a side cutter to precut them close to the diameter needed (KEY point as if you go too small they are ruined), then used a bench grinder to fine tune the fit.  They are a very tight press fit.

What was the original size of the grill? Inspired Laser design offers several choices, e.g. 80mm, 92mm etc.

80mm is the size to order from them.

Thanks! Considering ordering the honeycomb grill for my HE-500.
