    Greetings, i had an old powerbook g4 with a screen issue (lines in the screen) and i wanted to do something different so i took it and an Lc II apart and put the pbg4 innards in the Lc II, not only does it run but in my oppinion it looks very cool. Here are pics:

    it running will be up very soon:)

    It could be a bit more refined. A dremel would do you well. ;)

    Good attempt, using some cardboard templates would of made drilling and lining up the holes easier.

    Has it cured the lines?

    Nice touch adding the bicycle chain. Gives a real air of professionalism. I think all Apple service centres favour the old bike chain.
