    it will look like this under a bay cover,woulda bought it with the bay kit but it was anout $70 more and the display by itself was on sale so i can mod the cover myself.

    I don't know if LCD smartie 5 can be used for that display but it can if I remeber correct do stuff trhough the serail port . Maybe have a look ?

    But for you , sleep , forever will do
    Wish only to fight the urge
    Beaten senselessly for your basic need
