I have heard you can make a home made projector out of a old LCD computer monitor and a old Over head projector, My Question is has anyone here EVER made one? if so, how easy/hard was it to make? and do you have any tips on making it? :D

I known friends doing that before, Recommend getting some space between the glass and the screen and get fans to flow air to prevent overheating and melting. Also, try not to damage the lcd while trying to pull the backlit from the screen

do you know if all LCD monitors are the same?

They are made all the same way. but you need the LCD to have only one sided part where the cable connects to the LCD.

Basically be able to see though the LCD without the back panel PCB.

All lcd have a film of backlit usually sticked with the lcd screen. LED usually have little LED ICs on the site.
