First, to open up the 64, you need to take a BIC pen, take out the ink and just cram it on the screw. For the screen, I'm trying to use an old DSI screen, but everyone else says to use a PS1 screen.You can use whatever. : )

You might be interested in looking on my Wordpress site - covers how to mod the N64, what to use, and how to make it into a handheld portable.  

I joined Instructables so I can upload some of my videos in due course, saw your question and thought I would reply to it.

There is a PDF available for download on my site, and once the step-by-step video project of making a handheld N64 portable from scratch is completed, I intend to upload it all to Instructables.

Rather than taking apart an n64 and trying to cram it into a smaller box, which would be less likely to succeed because of the age of an n64, you'd probably have more luck buying a very small PC, installing a flavour of linux on it and running an n64 emulator.

Although.... you can get n64 clones that are very small now. And they come with all the games already installed.

Check out this instructable, it's for a NES, but the principal should be the same.
