Thank you for sharing this! I would love to do this, I'm not a big fan of the red display (though it's livable), but I'm way too timid to do make the swap. I'm actually pretty decent with a soldering iron and have a nice Hakko 936, but I just don't want to risk screwing my MD UW+ up. I just got one a couple weeks ago now and love it! Seeing another user on this forum badly damage his trying to swap out the display really hurts.
That said, I think I will go ahead and buy one of these displays to have as a parts spare for if/when the original screen does give up. That'll most likely be the component in the MD that will go over the long haul and I don't see myself parting ways with it any time soon.
Again, thanks for sharing the detailed pics.
