Once I had the
LCD monitor, I figured out a simple way to mount it into the
existing opening. I was going to clock the monitor 90 degrees
clockwise since most of the games I like to play are oriented tall
and narrow. MAME can clock all the games if you wish. I
got real lucky with the size of the opening and size of the LCD
monitor and had about 1/2 inch of clearance all the way around the
monitor. I removed the pedestal from the monitor. I then
used angles of sheet metal to rest the monitor on and secured it on
lace with a few homemade screw down clamps. It ended up
being much easier to mount the LCD monitor than I anticipated.
From underneath the cable and power plugs are easily accessible.
The LCD power push button remains in the last state it was in so if
I leave it on, it stays on, even if the plug is pulled from the
