I'm not sure why you didnt go all the way around like i did it. Looks great.

Actually facing out, I made a bracket to mount them on. You can use some kind of an angle bracket if you want. You need to be mindful of the lights affecting the camera or it will wash out the pic. I did it different than you overall, I used quick disconnects to make it easier to slide out the monitor.

I tried this on my hobbit and woz and the results weren’t acceptable, the glasses don’t allow as much light through and you can see the leds on the bottom row.

Sure, sorry for the delay.

Quoted from FatPanda:

I'll have to give it a go then!

Yep, it will work. We go off the connector, it's just easier that way. If you install on the bottom of the monitor, just be mindful of being too bright around the camera.
