    Ok done a little bit- the easiest part. The bottom area of the RP, no glue involved (just used a couple of sticky pads to secure the middle bit down)

    Haven't done a fab job.... but I'm a bloke- bloke's don't do fabric work!:rotfl:

    I've covered the two large steel plates on either side- is this OK? Do they act as heatsinks?
    Have a look for another lining project.

    See picture for comparison of the black cloth (right) to the plastic top cover (left)

    I've used a flash- checkout the reflection on the plastic!:eek:

    Picture showing the blackness difference between the chipboard, cloth & plastic back panel.

    updated pic with a window showing a different angle that shows up the camera flash (loads of reflections), now gone.

    Job done- back, sides & bottom. There's a couple of small areas that could do with blacking out-along the top. I'll do that I've got a few minutes too kill.

    Very nice nathan.

    but you think that it was worth the work.

    Ibelieve i have more contrast and an overall better picture.

    And wath abouth the tweak demon did with the fishingcord.

    Did you try that one.

    MVrg,

    Yup, done electrical & optical focus- with the fishing wire, plus full service level convergence in all aspect modes & input type (PAL/NTSC)

    I had the set before Demon ;-)
    Oh haven't switched the TV on yet, I'll let the glue dry first. Plus check the mirror for finger smudges.

    I made templates from finanical times newspaper, then overlaid the paper over the cloth, then cut.

    ohh yes that is the best way to do it.

    But i don`t understand the fishingwire.

    What is the trick there.

    You pull it to the left and right too focus ...what.

    And did you notice something different.

    About the optical focus- you use the fishing wire to focus the lens, just llike a set of binoculars.

    I haven't compared the picture properly yet- a mate has one of my DVD's where a halo is quite noticeable (introduction on Space Pilot 3000- Futurama)

    However it does appear to increase contrast levels- it's more vibrant. Therefore I can reduce contrast by a couple of clicks (to get the same as before)
