    Anyone? Going to be on vacation this week and am ready short of the display. Hate to purchase another display when this is the right size. Please?

    It is better to throw this screen.

    First you need a VGA-LCD controller. Search for digitalview for example. The usual price for an LCD controller is $140.

    Second, you need the cables to connect the LCD controller to your screen. (+30$ if you are lucky enough and exists a kit for this lcd)

    Third i don't think that this is a touch screen. you must buy one. (+150$ with controller)

    And last this is probably not a hi-bright lcd. If you put it on a car, you will see NOTHING.

    And an advise.
    Never buy LCD's, if they don't accept VGA analog signals, unless you know what you are doing.
    If a seller on e-bay gives a very generic description of his LCD, is probably trying to fool you, and 99% his lcd will not have inverter, controller and hi-brightness backlight.

    It will work, but not easliy, if you are looking for a long term project, you just bought one!

    Read up in the FAQ section
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?

    I bought the whole kit and assembled it. It took some time but it is a fun project. It requires soldering on the vga controller card mostly for the output to power the T.S. the other connections you could get connectors at radio shack or Digi-Key.
