This is great. As someone who hasn't done a mod yet, but who aspires to do so, this is inspirational.

Nice one, remember to do a quick "guide" too thumb.gif

And while you're at it (sig), fill in your hardware specs.

Nothing is more rewarding then taking base materials and turning them into a product.

Ok so i managed to Make my monitors vesa.......

1) Removed the stand and made 2 custom parts

2) The reason why its 2 pieces is because if it was 1 piece i wouldn't be able to screw the screws at the back.

450

3)Going to paint the pieces black matt when finished

450

Not bad at all redface.gif
btw, a small ratchet wrench or other angled tool would have come pretty handy with that monitor setup, you wouldnt have needed to make them out of 2 separate pieces.
I have similar screw bits as those angled hex keys. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
like these but philips, allen etc.

Looking good. I can not wait to see them mounted on the wall.

Good stuff. Hopefully I won't run into the vesa mount issue, but glad I saw the updates you posted here just in case I have to run out and get something to throw together a custom mount.
