Ryan, the answer is maybe ;-P
I'd have to find my disassembled Newton which I use to test them out with
Would have to make sure it tracks correctly first.
I'd suggest if anyone else has one to get it from them first as free time is
lacking on this end and I'm slow.
If that is not a problem then by all means I'll assist you.

No, there is no need to replace the a back light when doing this because the
Backlight sits in the frame of the LCD and you are only removing the TS
Touch Screen which sits on top of a metal cap of teh LCD portion.
