Grill less, I have car grills in mine, actually come too think of it, they were a recommendation from Thurston! I did really like my 560's naked, but for safety sake I added open grills. What do you prefer about the open grill sound?
Thurston, good luck on changing laptop screens, definitely out of my league, unless it comes as a whole and you just have to wire it together (or since your a fellow Southerner Duct Tape will do) 😜, and attach the hinges, then I might give it a shot. Let me know how it goes, my youngest Daughter spilled something on mine, and one of the corners is a wee bit funky, so if it's not difficult, I'll give it a shot.
I do like those Custom Car Grill aluminum grills, so they may get switched back in eventually, just to keep it interesting. Glad they're working out for ya And I pay tribute to the Head-Fier who first mentioned them!
Thanks. I've disassembled a few laptops to do repairs or replace dying components, so I can do the mod, just hoping it'll work. There's evidence it does, and the replacement part is seemingly identical in dimension and design to what I'm staring at right now.
I know about spilling things on laptops. I was Skyping with my future wife when I knocked over a glass of wine onto an old HP Pavilion. Ended up buying a system board from a FL eBayer. The board was from Poland, I think (had -PL at the end; definitely from Europe). One RAM slot is flaky, so I'm stuck at 2 GB, but damned if it's not still running. And it's new name: Drunken Laptop We still smile about it when I drag it out for occasional use.
If you can track down the Maintenance/Service Manual for yours, and then feel confident about disassembling it, it's doable, as long as you can find the part(s). There are a couple good sites for laptop screens.
