Hi all,

Firstly love the forum, loads of great info and comedy reading biggrin.gif

I'm Hhmm long time reader first time poster.

I have been modding for a while now and i'm making good progress with all the standard clear jewel, spray painting, LED ring, X3 front etc.

I'm keen to have a crack at putting the Hip LCD screen into the X3 front panel where the power eject buttons are and moving the buttons to the lid of the case on the big X beneith the jewel.


1, Does anyone know where i can aquire a hip LCD controller in the UK (I cannot track one down anywhere uhh.gif

2, Does anyone Know if the XERC IR receiver will fit in the IR window included in the X3 front panel (Just wondered about this before i buy one !).

Cheers Guys

Keep up the good work beerchug.gif beerchug.gif

I dont know the answers to either of you questions but i will try give you some pointers.

to find a hip is difficult if you dont live in the states, i bought mine off a member here, both of them actually. wander down to the BST forum and ask around for one, i have no doubt someone will offer you one.

try ebay, the states ebay.

try googling.

good night

I've never seen the X3 Front Panel in person, but ya, the XERC IR receiver should fit. It might need some minor work to place it there, like removing anything that might be in the way, hot gluing it in, etc., but the eye itself is very small, and should work fine.

For the LCD, do as others have said. BST or eBay. It's a discontinued product, so it will be very hard, if not impossible to find it sold in a store.

I got a hip screen off ebay for 26 a couple of month ago.

Just checked, the seller is not selling them anymore, sorry.
