When you replaced your frontTV I believe you went to some style of 32" flat screen. Was it necassary to reduce the cabinet widths to get the TV in the opening?

Looks like the left cabinet was altered and new doors installed. Now a remote will work through the fabric cover. The right cabinet looks original. What a great idea!

I think I might try a similar route. I enjoy wood working, but always like to see someone work through it first. I chicken easily when it comes to cutting into my coach.

No it went thru the door fine. See if you can get Gary Arnold to send a few pics of his installation. He built all new cabinets where as I modified my old ones.

Danny:

I think Ted was asking if you had to alter the sizes of the two side cabinets in order to expand the center cabinet, not if the TV fit through the front door.

It looks like you altered only the left cabinet, as well as the TV cabinet. The right cabinet looks original. That would certainly reduce the amount (and expense) of cabinet work required, though it leaves the TV a bit off center. Another upside is that the TV is no closer to the entry door than originally, avoiding head-bumps.

takepride, thank you, yes that was my question.Did you alter both sides or just one. It really does not matter as my 05 has a different configuration. My only hope is I can make mine look half as good as Danny's.
Bob Mahon, Peg would probably like a nice barn red on those front cabinets. This totally eliminates the concern of matching wood grains, etc.
Carol told me to do this.

Yah, yah, yah...........
Barn red indeed.
Then I'd have to find room for all those darn Roosters Peg's collected over the years.

I think I'll stick to the inlaid type work you saw in September (when the ice melts and my little chubby fingers will work out there).

Say Hi to Carol for us.

Originally, there were three cabinet doors to the right of the old TV. The TV was in the far left side. I removed the two center cabinets and installed the new LCD cabinet. The old TV enclosure is the new media center. I have since made a new single door for the media center.

Danny,

With regard to a monitor for the rear camera, do you use the LCD or have you had a monitor mounted on the dash?
