Thanks

Andy would it be worth using rubber grommets to mount the screen to avoid cracking through vibration?

On mine, I used a strip of 25x5 black self adhesive neoprene between the screen and the console (think it was called 'hatch seal tape', from local chandlers. It looks ok and acts as a gasket quite nicely. For fixings, I used M4x20 button head bolts, nylocs and flat washers - they look ok.

Have tried that; it does not work. Screen wobbles about with a single row screw down. Cracking is usually due to the thermal expansion problem.
