It has over two weeks since my last update! I have been pretty busy lately, but I have still made some progress in the HT. With the exception of the panel over the equipment room door, the panels are all up on the walls! I need to install cap molding around them to hide all of the staples...that's my project for this week.
I used Mario's idea above to build a box extender to mount the Grafik Eye flush with the face of the panel. And as you can also see in one of my earlier pics, the alarm keypad above the GE was white. I took the cover off to paint it black...apparently I touched some internal organs I shouldn't have touched and now the keypad is shorted out.
Hoping to get that one fxed this week...
Here is a pic of the final panels on the left side of the room. I have been having problems with the doorhandle so I am swapping out that lever for a knob that won't look so squished in that space.
