It's easier not to put black color on sides with this brush (According to me)

Correct  Wink

The brush I'm using is more like a sponge than a simple paint brush. There's no 'hair' on it.
You can paint without making colors spots nor 'run-out' paint on the side for instance.

T-Molding time. Tools of the day  arrow



Let's start ...

What!? Maybe I went too hard  shock  Evil  arrow



 Evil Evil Evil I was too quick on this  Evil I didn't check the trench, but a some points the trench wasn't depth enough for this US T-molding ! I though it was because I putted too much glue, and so... I so I struck too hard with the 'soft customized hammer'  Evil
Well, I also have to say that the wood used for this cab is just ...too fragile  Cool I also saw some nails inside the trench  Shocked Ghost I should pay more attention to the trench before starting the work  confused

Ok, let's correct this *stupid* mistake! Wood filler first...and let's bring back my good old router, in order to dig the correct trench depth :



What a mess after the 'Router' work ... I really need a workshop for such operation  roll eyes



Ok, now I'm sure the trench is ok everywhere on this side...  I can put T-Molding ...



Same operation on the other side... and this is it :



Fortunately, I have the *exact* yellow color, so it was not too difficult to hide the 'corner mistake'  Roll Eyes Tongue



 Cool

...and back on the control panel, which is ready to receive the CPO.  Cool

The two holes done on that repro panel are not accurate as you can see.  arrow



At this point, I'm not sure if the original "players buttons", after 'screwed', will cover the missing part of the overlay because... I still have to find the perfect 'compromise position'...yes, there is an other hole to fit, the one for the joystick (not showed on the picture), and for that hole, I cannot cheat... opss... stop talking  oppps , you'll understand on the coming pictures  Roll Eyes Tongue

So, just in case  arrow



This is the same yellow used on the side / CPO... so just in case  Wink

Here's the screws I'll use for fixing the joystick on the panel  arrow



I would like to paint them in the same yellow color than the panel... so here's my world famous 'mushrooms' pictures  Grin  arrow



Quizzz  Cool What is the support used on these two last pictures  Roll Eyes Grin Grin Grin  arrow

 Grin in that case, I've use a candy a chocolate box... I don't remember the name (I don't have the box anymore), but these are famous  Tongue  Grin You've to keep these chocolates in your fridge by the way  roll eyes Ok back to the topic  lol arrow

Wait!...maybe you will recognize them, because of the box shape  Roll Eyes  arrow



Easy painting  Tongue :





...and after one day of drying, I'll 'drop' the screws once again inside the paint for a second layer.

It's time to apply the CPO.



Three holes to adjust : two for the players buttons, and one for the joystick. I give the priority to the Joystick one. This last one must be perfectly adjusted or it would look ugly!... but because of that, there is a small shift for the players button ones  arrow



That should not be a problem, because the buttons will hide the small shift  Wink

The major tool for applying a CPO in a curved panel : a dry hair  arrow



Applied and cutted  Kiss  arrow

let's 'populate' the panel  Smiley  arrow



mmhhhh... the paint I've used for painting the screws is too 'heavy'... even after weeks of drying ...it's still not completely dry, see  arrow



OK, I'll prepare a new set of screws with a yellow paint, done -like I use do to- with spray. During this time, let's use unpainted screws...



On location... not too bad  Kiss



First test... I'm using the original plastic bezel around the monitor... but, even with the bezel glass, both don't hide wires  Undecided ... see  arrow





OK, let's create a 'third' bezel... like this  arrow





Perfect now  Kiss  arrow
