I sealed the edges of the faceplate/CRT with
aquarium-grade clear RTV. This was outside the field
of view permitted by the housing of my HP terminal.
Keep everything absolutely clean (I used acetone) so
that no dirt or smudges will be permanently trapped
between the two surfaces. Use good lighting, outdoors
(because of the acetone).
I would STRONGLY advise ALWAYS replacing this
faceplate. I'm sure that having it in front of the CRT
itself will be very helpful if there is an implosion.
I have read that the neck a a CRT tends to be shot
through the front of a CRT in the event of implosion.
This would be bad.
Once assembled this way, there has been no optical
affect whatsoever visible on my CRT. It is impossible
to tell that there is a space between the CRT and
faceplate (in my case, around 1/4-1/8".
