15mm and 30 pin, so a pinch of 0.5 nicosalto used the same monitor as i am using and had to use a  PCB board 40pin and a ffc 30pin/0.5pitch monitor in question is LP150U03. got it new in the box for 20 bucks didnt see that it had 2 boards on back instead of one (itchy ebay finger got the best of me) have the controller board coming, opted for slow shipping to give me more time to do more research .

Good tutorial, thanks for sharing.

Would something like this help you? - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FFC-FPC-40-pin-0-5mm-Pitch-Ribbon-Cable-line-ZIF-HDD-length-20CM-Adaptor-extend-/161392514031?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item2593be53ef

Actually I was mistaken on the size of the extension i need i miss read the post i thought i saw mine in and turns out it is completely different, i have a fpc with
10 mm width
.5 pinch
20 pin



I found a .5 pinch 25 pin adapter board with a coupling on each end on ebay it is around 5 dollars, but looking at mouser electronics website i found zif coupling with .5 pinch 20 connector dual contact, only problem i have right now is figuring out what it means by  top or bottom contact
and since the coupling is a dual would it even matter as long as the cables were both inserted the same way?
the coupling is only a dollar and some odd cents but i dont know if i can insert 2 cables into it with out wrecking my cable attached to the lcd, so i am thinking i might try the 25 pin board and order some 20 pin .5 pinch cable. if anyone can tell by my picture if the cable is top or ottom i would appreciate it, i would think it is bottom since the connector on the lcd has metal connectors on the bottom but i have thought wrong before.

I can't see a reason why you couldn't just use the same parts. By the way you're fpc is bottom contact as in having the pins on the board side. One thing you'll need to make sure of is that the ffc you by has the pins exposed on opposite sides at each end to maintain continuity of the cable. Incidentally there exists a tape called anisotropic tape that you can get on eBay for a few pounds that is adhesive on both sides and conductive through it's thickness. The tape is ideal for connecting ffc/fcp of the size you are talking about, see here - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3m-9703-Z-axis-Electrically-Conductive-Adhesive-Transfer-Tape-200mm-/261641422305?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3ceb0b45e1

By the way for anyone reading this where the link eventually dies the tape is called 9703 z-axis (anisotropic) tape by 3m. (doh! It's spelled out quite clearly in the link, nevermind).

I just found ffc extensions on dealextreme which are pretty cheap if someone still needs them:
