Is this real life?
That's how much of an impact debezeling made for me. I can't believe how much more awesome these look now.
First image shows the splicing I had to do to add more length to the back light harness. As you can see I routed it through the bottom because there was an opening. I didn't realize that cord was basically the exact length needed when routed to the left of the pcb box. So obviously don't make the same mistake I made.
I used JB Weld Clear Epoxy from Wal-Mart. They also carried the steel epoxy that RemmiB suggested, but the cure time is a lot longer. The clearweld is 5 minute handling time, 4 hour cure with 3200 PSI strength. I found it to be excellent, however on the second application (used the same mixing tray) I found that one edge came up off the PCB box, so I had to mix a fresh batch and apply more alongside that edge.
I tried some mounting tape, but felt that it was unnecessary. I mounted the controls on the back of the pcb box, and just used some electrical tape to hold down the plastic buttons as well as hold the pcb down. Make sure you use some electrical tape underneath the LED as that can short out when the contact touches the bare metal of the pcb box.
For painting I used Plastidip. This stuff is extremely forgiving and requires limited preparation. You could spray uneven and it dries perfectly flat. However, near the edges of the bezel It does peel rather easily, so you don't want to handle the brackets much after you're done. Just throw it back on.
I was able to bend the brackets to try to correct the bends in them. One came out perfectly, while the other still had a bit of distortion in it. I tried plugging the display in with no bracket just to check on before and after for back light bleeding. WIth the bracket off, there was almost no BLB at all, so I knew that the bracket had to be bent better in order to achieve the desired effect. After bending it properly and attaching electrical tape underneath, I have improved my display BLB to a very minimal amount.
Very happy with both displays and couldn't recommend debezeling enough. If you are going to epoxy straight on the back just realize there's probably no way to ever get back into the PCB without trying to dremel your way through. It's a permanent fixture.
I had a panic attack when I realized the cord was too short, so just take your time and you won't have issues. I am fortunate that it was just the backlight cord and nothing signal related that could bring interference to the picture.
