    Hey everyone,

    I've got a 13.3" late 2008 macbook, to make a long story short i cracked the glass cover that's over the lcd pretty bad, I read a couple threads and figured out how to remove it, I love the look of the computer without the glass, and want to build a bezel that goes around the border of the screen to cover up the sides and bottom using frontpanelexpress.com, its been done before and I'm including pictures, I just need the exact dimensions of the screen surround or an idea on how i can do it very accurately,

    thanks in advance,


    this is a picture of cryonic49's bezel ( thanks for pics, i will take down pictures if need be )

    and here it is on his macbook, I want to powdercoat mine black, with a custom logo

    now i haven't been successful in contacting cryonic49 to get the measurements, so any help is appreciated, if not i will order the glass and take it to a metal shop...?

    Has anyone had any luck with this?

    I'd like to do this to my MBP when my warranty runs out. Thanks.

    Just to let you know, removing the glass does not automatically make it antiglare.
