I start my build. This build has been planned since last year, but i've been soooo busy.
Suddenly, I wanna start the build, anyway i have all stuffs now.
This build might be similar with "Aerendraca" build, but there are differences.
The specifications are :
- Intuos 5 (PTH-850) : it has touch capability, but will not use it.
- LCD : a1398 retina screen (forgot the model name)
- LCD controller : from http://dp2mbpr.rozsnyo.com/
- Backlight unit
: this is main difference from "Aerendraca" build. I will use the original diffuser, reflective sheet, and other sheets.
As you know, the screen has backlight unit combined together with top cover of MacBook.
So it is difficult to buy each stuff seperately, but they are in EBAY. lucky!The problem is that I must make own backlight unit.
"Aerendraca" uses another backlight unit of 15.4inch LCD.
However, in my opinion, it would be better to use original BLU parts to have best screen quality.
Anyway, yesterday I broke the broken top cover which I got from ebay in cheap price.
With broken top cover, I will measure dimensions for my own BLU.

You know what? it is really difficult to disassemble it. We only have to crack it down..
it has sticky glue on all area. I got scratch on my finger during this work T^T.
After several minutes..
When pulling out the diffuser, it was broken
but it is ok since I already bought it seperately.
Luckly I got reflective sheet that is what i need actually. I do not know but the ebay seller, who is selling diffuser and 4 sheets between diffuser and lcd, does not sell the reflective sheet. Anyway I got it yesterday.
I will measure the dimensions such as height width of all stuffs to make BLU.
Maybe BLU will be made of arcryl or ABS.
