Great idea on the white X & Y buttons! Help keeps the original GB look! 8-)

Looking good! Which screen did you buy? The positioning of the driver board looks perfect for fitting the Pi down beside it.

It's a Bw 3.5" TFT from amazon cost me £13 now with this model the driver boards are like a lucky dip they come in all shapes and sizes but all still work some you don't even need to mod to take 5v reading on the forums. But I I'm glade of is size :mrgreen:
