A laptop display is hinged, the FR display is not.
Now, you can probably work the FR display loose and tilt it up. Leave 
the original backlight in the case. Use a mirror arrangement to get a 
sun backlight.

Some case modding will be necessary, but the big question is if display 
cabling will work with this.
