Need help w/ IR Camera project Answered

ok, so i am working on building a pair of Infrared night vision goggles, I have a $0 budget, so am making this entirely from recycled materials and material i already own, so please no suggestions requiring me to make a purchase, please :)

here is my issue: I already have a camera that i am modifying to view infrared only, and i want to have the LCD screen go further from the camera than its ribbon cable will allow.

i have considered cutting the ribbon wire and splicing wires between the two ends, but im afraid that it won't work and then i will have no ribon cable at all, and thus of course no screen.

so if anyone has any solutions, that would be great

also, the Camera is an HP M23, fairly cheap camera, but i have an infrared filter modded into it, i dont know if it helps for you ppl to know the camera model.
