Step 1: Using Parts From an Old Bush Tv

I first added audio / video in to the bush tv, then thought I could strip down the TV and remove the tuner components from the main board along with other non required components to them leave a half empty PCB which I carefully trimmed down.

Step 2: See How It Has Progressed

added DC 9v in and a / v connectors at the back, and power, volume brightness , contrast on the front, using green sticky felt and mounted on a chopping board.

    I don't know what the dimensions are of this but I think it would be neat to add a car display-case plastic cube or maybe an acrylic Plexiglas cube over it. this would both add to the look and the safety not to mention keep dust out, plus you could take it off when you want.

    This is really cool. But dangerous, concerning the high voltage elements being exposed...but nevermind looks fantastic anyway. Reminds me of the PCs from the movie Brazil :)
