    O.K., I gutted the rear of the screen...the idea here is to have this screen super brite..daylight viewable.....I have to fully expose the rear of the screen to the light source.....there's a board that I have to fold up so I built a box out of stainless steel deep enough to have the board sideways to not block light. I took the back of the screen apart & cut out some bracing for the rear opaque reflector sheet, which I also removed with the thought of allowing more light to enter from the rear.

    at this point there is a lot of light projecting out of the rear....which should be a good thing I guess for when I have the rear mounted bulbs......the overall depth is 2 1/2"...I should be able to get a lot of bulbs in there. I am going to use ccfl bulbs on a dimming inverter.....I'm still considering.. but It will probably be between 8 & 16 bulbs....I'm shooting for 1000+ nit brightness

    I had to take the lcd apart to remove the rear layer & cut out this brace....or it's shadow would have been right across the screen..........

    AWSOME!!!!!! this looks really really cool.

    I have an extra allbrite houseing that my originial panel was in before the panel got smashed. Its a 10.4 so obvisouly the reflective films and such are of no use, but it does have ccfl's capable of 1400 nitts. Let me know if it could help you out, I have been currently useing it to fit the new dash peice I am making but I dont need th ccfls to do that.

    keep the pics comming!

    hey alti,thanks for the consideration...do you have an inverter to power the ccfls? If you do let me know & I'll pm you about this further...as I am anxious to get this going.I've been thinking about your bezel, hows it going...too bad you wern't closer to my body shop in brooklyn, I could defanately help you get that looking good...I'm waiting to see how you do with it

    I have to extend the bezel in my center console to fit this screen where the 8" was, it's plastic so I'll basically treat it like a bumper...cut & weld,then finish off with bumper repair products....a lot easier to work with than fiberglass, but this means that I will have to paint all of my dash bezel plastics...something I've been able to avoid until now. My dash is now in pieces.....
