Just a word of caution "outlet in the closet" not good. If you can be sure clothes, paper bags, blankets and other combustibles will never be placed on or around the plug your good. I just don't want to be reading about you in the news paper. 12 volt ok in the closet 120 volts not.
Did you use the drawer slides for your TV mount?

Not sure about the antenna rewiring. I'll investigate.

Sorry, I thought I had replied to your post - I don't want to read about us either! We put the plug at the extreme front of the closet ( no clothes or anything else there), but to be sure, we will look into a shield for the plug. Thanks for the warning!

Oops I forgot to answer your question. We didn't use the drawer slides but settled for a regular wall mount because we had it already. But your idea is very clever, and if we find we need to access the back of the TV, we may switch.

How about building a cabinet to go in the big hole.

Well this is what I came up with, not to bad. I have about $ 5.00 in it and lots of hours. There is something behind the panel so it's not wasted space. I was thinking making the ships wheel turn with the steering wheel but that may be over doing the theme, just kidding.Click image for larger version

My newer moho had a 22" tv mounted in the same place, but I wanted to go HD and larger. There is AC and cable in the cabinet above so I ran everything form there, used a Costco swivel mount but kept the back plate that has a Velcro strap for travel. I remounted the swivel with the back plate, new Velcro and have a wireless UVerse box to use when I am docked next to my house. The 26" is the maximum fit when up against the wall without sticking out.

I had to add some cushioning (cork gasket in this case) at some points of the mount because the metal-to-metal was grinding away when driving.

The mount pulls out and swivels, and there is an upgraded audio since we susually watch a movie or other dvd.
