very nice mod, but taking the shell apart is VERY hard. Other than that, it's just taking the monitor casing off.

Only real problem with that mod is that you'll start to have glare on an lcd monitor.

The base of the monitor is spectacular.

perhaps the only thing I can say is that I'd like to see the plexiglass on the sides or something. (for the glare)... but I'm now thinking about doing something similar!! that's awesome!! (esp the base, that's just incredible)
