The new case also has a front door which has a detachable face on it with a piece of mesh steel in it. So I took the face off the door and cut the steel to accommodate the LCD display. With a bit of hot glue in the back to hold the LCD in place this is how it came out:
The cables at the rear of the LCD slide in and out between the front 5.25" bay plates so it works nicely.I am pretty happy with the outcome. And it looks tidy and clean as well. I would like to have something covering the green chipboard at the bottom of it, but I will figure that out later.

More pix than you sent me!!
NOW I can see what you mean.
Obviously you don't open the 'door' much. I would be worried that I would damage those leads feeding through the mesh.
Why didn't you just take the door right off.?
Only read the manual as a last resort.
Do you have access to a Dremel tool?
If so, what I'd do is bond a couple of the coverplates together, then dremel out an opening for the LCD while attaching the PCB to the coverplates from behind with just the LCD exposed.
Edit: I didn't see the second set of pics until I wrote this. But you may still be able to accomplish the same thing with the coverplates, but making sure you allign both holes.
