So, after seeing the interest Alex has on this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWmJBTMqenY

I wanted to help with this sleeper on an imac g3, cause ive fell in love with them (and other PPC iMacs). This was an old thread on MacRumors discussing a way to reuse the crt with a VGA input. So i went back to get my progress  to share it here, but as it turns out rockyhill, oishimai and others over there managed to get it working with a capture i made of the comunications between the "logic board" and the display driver.
I leave the link here if anyone is interested.

Im really excited to see if this ends up on a completed project.
