Get a $10.00 A4 alu frame from office works and screw the power through the cardboard backing and you're done. You're coming to the astro-meeting tonight? I'll bring it over for you to have a look if you want.

Now that clears everything up, it was getting confusing.

I saw this in an earlier post Marc, but have just revisited it. My EL panel has the wiring emanating from one corner, and protruding about 30 - 40mm. Sure I could cut the ally frame, but it would still "hang out" over and above the frame.
Did you bend yours back on itself?
