That is really looking good Sharon…
I was wondering too what @rel571996 did to secure the switches. He beautifully routed them out to fit to the right level for us. I was thinking maybe hot melt glue gun…
I used Gorilla Epoxy on mine
with all this talk of desktop monitors I realized I have extra switches laying around. if anyone is interested in them drop me a pm
Except those are not the correct switches; not enough ridges
ya… wasn’t sure. but I thought I’d put it out there…
How’d you separate the two parts? I’ve been looking at mine, wanting to do the same thing, but haven’t been able to find any accessible screws.
This is why I love a thread just for @rel571996 s build. We can all help each other n see what they all look like!
So… look inside The monitor cavity. You will see two holes. One main center hole. Then there’s an offset hole that you use with a shorter screwdriver to reach the four screws that hold the plate into the base. Have to spin it around to reach them
Ah, I wondered what that off-set hole was for, lol. Thanks @wood4sheep2 And you’re so right. These kind of threads help everyone to collaborate and encourage one another’s builds along. I love it!
I agree, this is exactly the kind of thread these forums need more of. It’s great to show a built prop, but it’s so much better to share methods and post build pics. Isn’t that why we’re here, to learn and improve techniques?
do you or anyone else have the colors for the cards?
This is in Greg’s words of what he used…
Here are the color codes for the eight colors I used. As I’ve said before, we use Wal-Mart paint since Wal-Mart is just about the only place we can get paint in our one-horse town.

Also don’t forget about the Desert Cards…
They look yummy!
