SINGLE 5.25" BAY + 6"
TFT LCD = STEALTH MOD
I am going to begin this guide by
showing the mods that must first be done to the screen. The 6"
LCD monitor was purchased at Parts
Express, the price (at the time of this writing) varies from $120 to $160
USD. The LCD is perfect for this mod as it turns itself on automatically
whenever a signal is present, has a clear picture at 640x480 and also a really
good degree of viewing angle.
Below is a shot of the back side of the LCD
screen - please note that the screws shown in the picture were not included with
Below are the instructions (front
and back) that are provided with the screen.
First things first, we need to put a molex end
onto the wiring for power to the monitor, for this I used a three pin to four
pin pass through connector and some heat shrink tubing.
The picture below shows the intact 3 to 4 pin
wiring and under it the cut part that we need.
Strip back all the wires and add heat shrink as
shown in the following picture.
Solder your wiring connections, the red wire
goes to the white wire and black to black, after soldering secure
it all with the heat shrink tubing and your LCD power cable is complete.
Don't bother hooking up the wiring you just
made yet... there is still much to do.
