Reassembling Your Display
Once you've got your LED strips in place and wired up, you can then reassemble your display, placing the diffusion and fresnel layer while leaving the second diffusion layer off if it cuts down the output too much. You can then place the display back the original border, but if it doesn't fit, use some tape to keep everything in place. Perks uses a metal border that he custom made and fastens it with epoxy.

After that, it's just a matter of completing the wiring by extending it and adding a power socket.
