Well Promised myself I'd keep up to date with this thing until i'm done!
Cut the holes out for the 17" screens in the back today. Took a while longer than expected but being that I dont have the materials to replace the 2 rear panels if I crack them I thought it would be best not to rush the job.
Wasn't too complicated, just used the original plastic trim from one of the screens to mark out and roughtly cut out the sections with a jigsaw. Then hot glued the surround to the top of the panels when they were in the right position, flipped the panel over and used a router with a flush trim bit to finish off the job. Was a little nervous about that bit as I've learnt the acrylic has a tendency to melt instead of cut if the bit gets too hot and the waste material has nowhere to go.
Then put the two panels together, face to face and marked the coutout for the second screen to make sure they were symetrical.
As the screens themselves are quite heavy, I'm gonna fabricate a sort of steel clamp frame to hold them in place on the back of the acrylic panels. Should be able to get at least one of those done tomorrow, hopefully both.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, never seem to have enough time in the evenings after work, it's getting dark real early now!
