that was my original idea for the easiest way.If i could drill 4 holes and mount the glass panel safelly that would be the best and the easiest thing.
What are your thoughts about that?
but looking at the inside where the panel attaches, i'm not so sure.
looks like pretty thin metal. if you could find some light acrylic or even plastic, possibly it would be strong enough to hold it on and still look good.
how is the side panel attached?
does it just slide into some grooves or something?
you may be able to find images of the inside of the side panel itself using Google's Image Search and figure something out.
