About to go foward with this mod. I decided to cut a piece of nicely finished plywood and stain it. I figured it would be best to just cut it the entire size of the tv opening for strength.

That's what I did. I used a 3/4" piece of plywood, cut to the dimension of the swivel rack. I glued and screwed it, also using small head trim screws through the side of the swivel rack, into the side of the plywood. That has worked perfectly for me.

When I tried to mount directly too the swivel rack, I couldn't get the screws to "bite in". It was like the back of the swivel rack was particle board, and the screws were just chewing out the material.

Thanks for the tips. I'm using 1/2" do you think that will be OK? Also what size screws?

So after talking to another member on here I decided to upgrade to 3/4 backer. Stained and put a nice coat of polyurethane on it. Sometimes I can over the top.

Nice idea. I may do the same just to be safe. I've had a 32" Vizio mounted using a Cheetah swivel mount and its done well since October even while driving on bumpy roads. I used 1/2" wood screws.
