    Yes I have the manual but it does not show how to mount the corner brackets. Nor is there a good image. On the store page they show a couple of images of the setup but non show the corner brackets.

    OK, I see. The manual needs some more pics. Try the 200/100 manual. That should clear it up.
    If it does not, call Richard, he will be glad to help.
    After assembling my P1 ( there was no manual present at that time) it is clear to me, but if it is your first time assembling 80/20 profiles, you may be puzzled ... :)

    Thanks. It is not a very big or hard puzzle. Only the part I explained is not well documented. But I changed a bit. Moved 2 connector brackets and now it is a solid piece. Mounted the screens and it looks very nice. Although I can’t get the screens allignd the way I would love to see. There is a somewhat larger gap between te screens then I like. All is spirit level but still at the topof the screens is a larger gap than at the bottoms of te screens.
    Nevertheless it is not enormous and I will leave it as it is. If it going to bother me I always can try to smooth things out.
    Tomorrow I put the stand in place and rebuild my rig. So hopefully I can race later that day.

    It helps if you move the Vesa plates so the monitor bezels overlap a (little) bit. It makes the gap smaller and they support each other. I hope my explanation makes sense for you.
    Using a washer between the screens and the Vesa plates (at the bottom side) might also help).
    As you can see, no gaps here.

    Yeah I already thought of that. (Washers underneath the vesaplates. It will bring the upper sides of the screens closer to the the middle screen.
    Will try to tweak some more. Thanks for the heads up.

    Indeed. They now look great. No stretching whatsoever.

    Is this only for triple screen or also for single screen or VR?

    The startup argument is made for triples, you don't need it for single screen or VR, so...
