Got a Lynx 2 locally with Checkered Flag for $20. Did a recap and used the Console 5 voltage regulator refresh kit (and pulled a pad for one of the transistors UGH http://atariage.com/forums/topic/285449-lifted-pad/).  

 

It's such an improvement over the close to 30 year old system! Now... about that flash cart!

Awesome! Did you install the VGA adapter port too? When I did the McWill install originally I didn't bother with VGA but now have been regretting not doing it so planning to take my Lynx apart again and fit the VGA port.

Got mine installed at ejagfest this year, best purchase of the year for me. Feels like playing on a brand new console!

I wonder if a similar technique could be used to create VGA ports for other consoles of the time like the Sega Master System.

It was a damned good deal, guy said it was his cousin's and had no use for it.  he also had a 32X and was willing to sell it for under $50... I should have bought it, but I have too many toys!

No, I skipped that part, might go back and put it in later. I am not too happy with my wiring so i'll need to open it up again and fix that, perhaps I'll do the VGA adaptor when I do that

looks really great!
I also have an LCD display and an Atari Lynx 2 lying around. Only time is missing.
How long did you need for the installation?

I did not want to obstruct the VGA adapter. I think that just makes the case ugly.
