    Baby sister is gonna get the same treatment. I'm expecting the turnaround timeframe to be double what the first one has been unfortunately. Work is being a cunt right now. You want her when I'm done with her?

    Haha that sounds funny.

    QUESTION

    Big Red #1 came with a 25" black cardboard bezel which was never trimmed properly (about 1/2" sticks out each size of the monitor glass). We're the cardboard bezels standard on these machines? It already has smoked glass so it's seems a little unnecessary. If so, I'm going to need another one eventually.

    From what I have seen and some research I did awhile back, (because I asked the same thing myself with my 4-slot) Yes. Both of those cabs have 25' monitors in them. Like any other bezel its just there to hide the frame and the gaps between the frame and cabinet.

    Edit* Happ makes some replacement bezels http://na.suzohapp.com/wp/search.p?O...s/49010500.htm

    From what I understand tho the bezel they offer it shows an uneven amount of the black part of the monitor and it is about half an inch too deep so the corners bend on the neo cabs.
    so you might have to do some trimming. As always you can make your own as well.

    Right on. I was more curious about the cardboard bezel. I don't remember the Neo ever having a plastic bezel?

    Not that I have seen, at least not on the US Neo cabs.

    The bezel that was on my Big Red was a kind of heavy black construction paper thing. it was in rough shape so I tossed it and haven't replaced it.

    Love this thread so far! I just picked up the same tall cab with a four slot inside but gotta admit I don't have the handy skills required to go above and beyond like you are. Can't wait to see the final result.

    --> moved from 'Hello Miss Lady!' <--



    SO. I'm trying to finish up the cab. I got a little more work to do, and the rest is just slapping things back together. Does anyone know where I can get stencils for the side art? Or let me borrow some? Jasen closed up shop so he can go hang out with a bunch of mens on a boat for like 9 months so I'm not going to be getting any from him. Only other thing I can find is vinyl decals (i said that like a conehead), and I dont want those.

    PLS HALP!
