Need to find a Controller Board kit for LG LCD display LP121SP Answered

I have salvaged the LCD panel from an old IBM Thinkpad 570 Laptop and planning to use it with Raspberry pi.

The Model and Technical details of the panel are as under:

Make :                          LG LCD Inc., Korea
Model Number :           LP121SP
Panel Size :                  12.1 inches
Dot Resolution :           800 (RGB) x 600 (SVGA)
Pixel Configuration :     RGB Vertical Stripe
Pixel Density :               82 PPI
Aspect Ratio :               4:3 (H:V)
Form Factor :               Flat Rectangle Display
Pixel Pitch :                   0.3075 x 0.3075 mm (H x V)
Active Area :                 246.0 x 184.5 mm (H x V)
Orientation :                  Landscape type

I want to convert this panel to use with Raspberry pi, but unable to find a suitable converter board kit. I have added few images also here for reference. Any help will be highly appreciated.

You won't be able to find a controller board for it either. Laptop screens are no good without also salvaging the controller board from the laptop's main board. This kind of qustion comes up often.
