At first glance the styling of the FT01 looks extremely similar to that of the TJ07. One obvious change, however, is the adding of a ventialtion grille at the front of the casing. The TJ07 had intake fans on the side of the casing instead.

To protect the side window from scratches during transport, Silverstone
affixed protective plastic sheeting not only to the outside, but also
the inside, of the window.
