    Do you mean a cable joiner to extend the coax or a wood butcher to redesign the cabinet. ?

    My grandson is a joiner based in Leyland not sure how busy he is at the moment as he is starting a refurb at our village pub but I could contact him and see if you like

    If your tv is located above the windscreen then I removed CRT anologue tv, cut a suitably sized piece of ply to fit just in the recess and stained/varnished to match cabinets.
    I carefully measured and drilled holes to match the tv mounting holes and a hole to feed the various wires through.
    I then fitted the ply to the tv then fitted the whole lot in the recess left by the crt tv.

    I have sent him a text ....he may not get back to me straightaway as he has been busy helping with the clean up in Croston after the flooding but as soon as he does I will let you know and if it's something he could do I'll give you his number:)
