Here's a shot of the inside...it's pretty messy, but the cables fold themselves down just fine:marcushg wrote:Cannikin, as i have the same screen as you, could you insert another picture of your build from the inside? i wonder how you did to not screw the flat cable up...
I assume you desoldered the white sockets of the screen pcb?
how did you do that thing with the glass?s
Yep, I removed the white sockets to get the control board as thin as possible.
For the glass I made myself a little jig that holds the tip of my Xacto knife about 3/16" away from the edge, then scribed around the edge. That made a nice sharp line in the paint. Then from the backside I used a razor blade to scrape away all of the paint up to that line. It's not perfectly sharp as the glue on the back was a pain to remove cleanly. Someone said that the guy that makes these glass screens is maybe going to make one that looks just like the one I made. That would make things MUCH EASIER.
