Another LCD monitor conversion: Apple Color Monitor IIe

Once again I converted a 15″ Apple Color Monitor IIe to a modern display, using a 15″ color LCD screen. I had to cut lots of plastic from the front plastic panel of the IIe monitor, but didn’t compromise the integrity of the plastics and locking mechanism.
To solve the main issue – the curved screen, I added a black cardboard pieces to close the gaps with the flat screen. after several tries found it was the best approach keeping the original case and looks.
On the back I adapted three connectors for future composite inputs, and a VGA for connecting the IIgs with some devices I’m still waiting to arrive.So this is still a work in progress, but so far is looking pretty good.
