  • Why does everyone take the back of their screens off?

    For cooling/fitting, what?

    Mainly because there's not enough space for the back to fit behind the dash.

      Also if fabricating the screen into the dash, quite often the back won't fit back on - or at least in my case anyway.

        with the new brightness mod you are gonna have to leave the back off for cooling!

        Need to go get some notes on LCd cooling from my old systems/avionics lecturer!

                        I cut my case up fairly good to make it fit behind my dash but found that leaving the back in place (with cuts) was the easiest way to mount it.

                          On mine, the screen components were attached to the front bezel. Once I discarded that, there wasn't any way for the back to be used. Plus, I had space and weight considerations.
