Round 2 panel install

After completing the back panel we worked on the front one, there was no cabinet work to do, but the rest more than made up for it.

The goal here also was no new holes, so we devised a bracket that would hang on the overhead out of aluminum and Oak.

there are a couple different angles involved that required some clever table saw work on the Oak connector pieces, this allows for the back of the top part ot be 90 degrees in the back side, then the front part to hang at the odd angle to be on the front.

To the right side there was an access cover that made things easy except there was a box containing 4 circuit cards with a kazillion wires, this required new box and rerouting to allow for the DVD player.

There was some un-used wires up there, but we could not find the other end, so new ac, 12 volt and antenna wires needed to be routed up, the 12 volt was easy, just into the front run box, the ac and antenna had to be routed all the way to the back end to the other one.

The power was as the other one, a home made ATS with new female connectors that allowed all wiring to be plug in and no cutting of factory cords.

We made a new door and added some high dollar weather instruments that we had, it seems weather stations were common in this era of coaches, but they were not in ours, and the usual ones were the low dollar ones, these are great.

We kept the CRT in the kitchen area for now as the one bench could not see this one.

We now have a great set that can be seen from every seat in the front area.

The set is only a couple inches below the overhead, there is a rear view mirror, no back window so it must be for passenger monitoring, it is not blocked.

We only need to be carefull of the corners getting in, but they are out of the way, the set only is about a couple inches thick, the mounting bracket only adds 1.25 inches to the overall thickness.

Now we need to come up with something else to do...
