I want to crack open my Mac Plus and replace with a pico-ITX Via C7  
mainboard plus 8.4-9" LCD... put USB slot[s] where the floppy disk  
opening is, running vMac of course!  Do I need special tools to open  
it?  What is a good/cheap LCD to install inside?  If this project  
fails, it will be just another Macquarium...
