Well this guy's feeling quite foolish for not thinking of that. Sounds like a solution I can make happen. Thanks particlewave. I've been trying to see if I could find the assembly and it's not...

No problem, Whippy. The only thing I was wondering is if maybe your surround was in place but missing the perspex piece, as you call it. If you can see that small stud on the bottom of the roll...
