Hi Ho LK23: good job! I noticed that you were concerned about the antenna for HD. Actually any TV antenna is normally adequate in a high-signal area. In fact the problems associated with analog TV (ghosts) are not normally a problem with HD. When we put HD in here at home I thought I would give a bad antenna a try, so I just plugged in a piece of wire. We get all local HD channels with no problem.

LK 23, Sorry I have not gotten back to you sooner, but besides the TV replacement I am getting ready for a seven month summer trip three of which will be in Alaska. Just took my rig to the dealer yesterday to fix what I thought was a conpartment door alignment - it turned out to be the L/R-Kitchen slide needs adjustment, so it's still at the dealers being fixed.
I did manage to complete the TV swap. The only change I made was I had to put the center of the front 2X4 left 4" vs. 3". Believe that was the fault of it being a different TV (not the Sony). Mine looks almost as good as yours but we love it anyway and I'm not a very good carpenter. I also used a jigsaw and not a router - had to do some sanding but it really looks good. I also ordered the piece for the bottom from Forrest City, but will pick it up in PA as we leave Sunday for our trip. Thanks again for all your help. And if I can do this project anyone can do it.

I want to send a few photos of my install but not sure how I do that. I have uploaded them to my computer seven in all. I know how to send you an email with them if I can have your address. Or can you tell me how to post them here?
I forgot to mark where the support 1"x2"s were so have a few extra holes in the bottom plywood, but overall it came out well.
BTW how does the extra piece of cabinet on the bottom come off (it was for the old TV where it came out some on the bottom). I will need to get it off when the piece (like the top)I ordered for Forrest City comes in.
I'm new at posting photos so hope you can tell me how. My email is below if you need it.

Lk23,
Thanks for the email. Here goes my attempt to attach photos.

The bottom piece I was talking about but did not explain right is - The old TV had a piece of trim that stuck out on the bottom and there was a little piece of 1x that they had on the botom of the cabinet face to support it (or to protect someone from banging into the old TV). Looks like it was attached to the cabinet face when th cabinet was assembled, possibly with nails or glue as there are no screws thru the back inside of the cabinet. On your pix I can see where you took it off by the filled nail/screw holes that I see.
Here's my photos.

Were you able to see the pix's I posted above? We have been on the road since 3/29 and in PA now so can't monitor this forum as much as I would like.

Yes, I was able to click on the photos and see them. Looks like it installed very well. Nice job!

How have you secured your LCD for travel?

Rex,
Don't know why the pictures don't come up like yours, but at least you got to see them. When we are moving I secure the TV with a 2" black web strap that goes through the back of the bracket and secures with velcro on the front of the TV. We also put a piece of memory foam (from an old pillow) under the TV and squeeze it in as we tighten the velcro. Once I install the bottom piece of wood we ordered from Forest City - the foam may not any more. Doesn't look that pretty but only we see it.
Did you ever understand the piece I must remove on the outside bottom of the cabinet, it is a piece of trim that was put on to hold the front bottom of the old TV trim where it came out an inch or so on the front base. If you look close at my pictures you may be able to notice it. Just wondering how you removed it? Looks to me that it was attached to the cabinet frame before cabinet was put together, as there are no screws or nails visible from the back. If it's just glued on maybe I can just pry it off. Hope that's the case, because the cabinet will be marred if I have to cut it off.
Take Care,
Quince

Quince,

Yes, I can see the piece of wood under the TV. If you enlarge the photos on my web site you can see where that piece was removed. There are four holes. As I recall, we pried it off and scratched the wood a little. The scratches were covered up by the trim piece.

I will add a photo of the installation with the finished trim piece. And I will add photos of my securing device used for travel.

I updated my installation photos with pictures of the finished install with the bottom trim in place. Also, I have new photos of the travel lock I devised to keep the LCD in place while traveling.

After trying several velcro attachments that did not hold I came upon the idea of using sliding glass doors locks purchased at Home Depot. This works very well and securely holds the LCD in place while traveling.

Here's the link to my photos:

Rex,
Thanks again for the info. The locks look like a good solution, I may try them too.

Got my bottom piece of trim from Forrest City and they only sent the bottom piece and not the raised top piece that's glued on. My dealer said the one part # was for both. It is 145462 52 R84 did you have a second part #? I paid $115.97 if I need to buy the second piece, I may just put four of those round wood plugs in the screw holes. I got a handfull of them when at the factory in 2007.

Quince,

I cannot remember but since the two trim pieces are separate pieces I think they would be separate part numbers. Compared to the large trim piece, the smaller piece cannot cost as much.

I have the same cabinet in the 38J and replaced the 27" Sony with a 32" Sharp. It is 1/2" narrower and does not require cutting of the cabinet.

I built a "back" wall and installed a Sanus fixed mount on it with the tv flush to the front. Works great with batwing attached to wineguard antenna.
