    It will depend on the monitor and if you want to replace the bezel after. Remove the stand. Remove any screws at the back holding the plastic cover. I use a stiff 1" putty knife, sometimes two, in order to work around the mating edges, releasing the internal plastic clips without damaging the plastic. If you don't care about the plastic edges or clips you could just use a a screwdriver. One thing to watch is around the switches, as there is a wire to the switches that are sometimes attached to the front plastic bezel and that you don't want to break.

    Re: Removing Monitor Bezel

    As Jess says work carefully and slowly as each monitor type has a completely different method of attachment but usually its just clipped together around the perimeter. Also once removed you might find the controller box behind the LCD screen comes free as it is usually held in place by the plastic surround so you may need to provide extra support for this without the bezel.

    BTW, Jess that is one serious chopper sim you've got there. Would love to hear more about its development. You've obviously got some machining background in order to fabricate your flight controls.

    Cheers,

    Ken.

    Re: Removing Monitor Bezel

    When fixing a `naked` screen to a new location you have to
    be carefull not pressing the screen to much to the pit-shell,
    otherwise you get nasty lightspots which you can see when
    the monitor wants to produce a black picture.

    using foamtape, kit or rubbertape will help in avoiding pressurepoints.
    When once you have tasted flight,
    you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward

    Ken,

    I don't really want to hyjack this topic but here is a little history;

    I always wanted a metal lathe in my younger days, but never was able to get my hands on one. I originally made the flight controls for my simulator out of "junk" laying around my shop. As my simulator progressed, and the software to make it run properly (Dodosim 206) was finished, I decided I needed a better system for the flight controls. I bought a lathe/mill combination machine and started some designs that would give an accurate representation of Bell 206 flight controls and helicopter controls in general. No real machining skills, just a desire to learn something that would give me what I needed.

    I placed the pictures of my controls on my website so others could use it as a reference, for ideas to build their own controls. It seems many builders either don't have the tools, the time, or maybe the "where with all" needed to make their own, so I started getting requests to build flight controls for their cockpits. From there it has developed into another sideline business of sorts. From the requests I get I may be headed into building complete helicopter simulators before long.

    One thing leads to another in this hobby,
