    so the other guy was correct, there is more than enough space to fit my 5mm panel and also keep the original plastic marquee holder if you want in this style of cabinet. Thanks, I am gathering parts to build up the panels and I will have another video showing installation in a mvs 4 upright that does not have the speakers in the top like this. I think I will then have enough data to say my 5mm panel is going to be fine and start to get in touch with people who have shown interest.

    If your light panel is only 5mm thick, I'll probably use some plastic offset spacers so that I can totally strip everything off the wood speaker panel and bring the panels close enough to the marquee door panel.

    Just a thought - it would be nice if you had a single bracket (I'm thinking a plate behind the 4 panels in my case) that would keep each panel exactly separated for a specific cabinet style. That way it's only ~4 holes to drill and screw and no worry about lining each panel up exactly.

    Never mind, I thought about this more and I can simply do this with a separate wood panel that I'll attach to the current panel. In fact, I think I can do it without any new screw holes. I'll just use some offset clips. I look forward to the final product!

    my panel is made to be the width as the old el panel so you just need to get the first one in the correct place and the rest should follow. A paper template was suggested so that is something I could do. Making anything for backing all 4 panels and sending that in the post from the uk would be super expensive.

    The local hardware store sells kit wood panels, I plan on using that as a backer and then using the current cabinet screw-downs for the original marquee panel to hold it in place. I shouldn't really have to drill any new holes.

    Really great job! I have been wanting something like this for awhile. I would definitely be interested in a 4 slot set with the pre-assembled control board once I see the installation video in a 4 slot without the speakers up top to make sure I can install this without issue on mine at home.

    The kit is with the usps so he should have it this week. I am not sure when he will make the video, but from our testing with a dummy panel we know the only issue is the space at the very top of the marquee is smaller than the bottom. He thinks adjusting the metal marquee holder with free up a little space will fix that.

    I should have a video showing installation in a upright 4 soon. We are about half way through the install. My leds arrived today so I can make a start to build some more panels.
