    well on a good note the screen is a 5 volt capable and is esay to mod unlike my last one that i killed the pcd on and i still have the listing for it it is a 640x480 one like foobar has upon looking at the ribbon cable i dont think it can do 640x480

    well the pi maybe dead but work goes on.
    the new screen in and hot glued in place pcb yet to mod did not feel like doing it today.
    the dead pi in place of were the working one will be.
    i found you can safely remove about 3mm of the pcb ethier side with out killing the pi but puting power on the wrong pins will kill it lol we live and learn.

    as you can see above the hole is a little bigger then the screen think many will have this same problem at the sides anyway.
    im trying to work out something to use as a small bead around the egde to tiday it up a bit after all work is done i will be spraying the hole thing black so alot more prep work to do yet.

    it is very surprising what you can fit in here.
    any one who says they don't have room are doing it wrong lol.
    i have yet to fit a usb hub, wifi dongle, wireless keyboard dongle and maybe a large storage pen drive.
    i need to wire up the buttons that going to be the easy part the hard part is doing the coding to make them work.
    alot of sanding prep work and spray it black.
    after all that only coding work should be needed.
