Replacing Analog and Installing HD TV

I am in the processe of Replacing Analog and Installing HD TV

What bracket did you use? Are there pictures anywhere?

I found a 32 inch that will fit perfect.

Thanks LeeB

I tried a metal bracket but ended up building my own out of wood. Made the sides fit tight then angled the top down for the viewing angle I wanted. Then a wood strip to match the house wood and made it fit tight.

Heck of a job..... Turned out Great....... I can only wish I had the tools and the talent to do something like that....

Great tip about leaving the screws out so you can access the back with out having to take to wood frame off........ I also had not thought about the sound system.......

Thanks So Much......... LeeB

I made use of the OE metal cage and attached angle iron to it to make my own mounting rackets. Attached angle iron to the back of the flat screen TV using the mounting holes in the TV and bolted the pieces attached to the TV to those attached to the OE cage. Use spacers as necessary to position the new TV as far into the 'hole' as you desire.

Chris, how did you remove the plastic cover from the tv? I removed the screws from the ceiling that were holding the frame, but cannot get the cover completely off without breaking it.

I assume you're talking about the plastic surround that covers the back and bottom of the TV. With the little plastic covers removed from the screws the screws through the flange into the ceiling can all be removed. In my case the center flip-down sunvisor also needed to be removed. At that point the plastic surround is held via several internal screws into the back of the wooden faceframe. After removing the center speaker at the top of the wooden faceframe (if you have one) the wooden faceframe and the attached plastic surround can be removed by removing a couple (possible three?) screws coming into the fraceframe from inside the cabinets on either side. The top of the faceframe then needs to tilt out a bit to clear the TV and the whole thing should come down.
