Quoted from herg:
Was there anything special you had to do to mount it on the speaker panel? I'm keeping an LCD in mine, so I plan to sell the Pin2DMD that I used to develop the firmware. When I do, I'd like to be able to suggest how to install it.
I decided to just mount the Pin2DMD right to the speaker panel(after removing the green Plexi) and it looks great. This was out of laziness because the clear Plexi I bought was too big and needs to be trimmed down. At first this was only a temporary arrangement but after the wife and kids saw it I think I may keep it this way. The panel fits the opening perfectly. You can't see anything around it where you'd think it wasn't supposed to look this way.
My biggest concern is damaging the LED pixels if something were to hit into them... then I got thinking that I've never had something hit into that area with any of our other games so I may just chance it.
If I were to install it with Plexi, I'd have to buy some spacers and longer screws since the Pin2DMD panel sticks out forward more than an LCD screen.

Can’t wait to install mine. Jeff where did you get the 3 bank decals?
Bought them off eBay...
They are expensive and shipping is ridiculous... but I like the way they look.
