Yes, I have had the cover shelved for a couple of years so the way the surround turned out in the end , it is compatable. Although I think I recall AndyR advising that you can use a square cover on a round cornered, but not the other way around anyway. I'm not really sure how square/ round any alternatives are without actually seeing them in the flesh, but I'm heading up to California in June so might try and see an example then, and their respective light. The corner radius on the cover I have is what looks to me to be about 1 inch ( 25 mm ), and goes well with my surround I think. It feels like a good light in the mock up, maybe a slightly greenish hue ( although the pic does'nt show it ), which matches the glass tint. And I expect the mesh screen will diffuse it somewhat ( so I'm not looking at raw fiberglass at least! ). I may have to adapt things a little for the lifter brackets on the inside though, but I cannot see it being too hard. Hope your own recovery is progressing well, Motoman.
