It was late last night when I was writing this, so I didn't go into as much backstory detail as I would have liked. I just added to it (copied below).

The initial thought was to remove the electronics of the TV, insulate nearly the whole interior and replace it with a flat screen TV. To do this, we would have had to reduce the size of our current TV, so that wasn't going to happen. We have a few ideas on what to do with the interior now though, so I won't spoil the end (unless we find another idea that was really unique but won't work).

subscribed this is totally effing awesome. Even more awesome would be if your final plan is a touch screen jukebox (that's what I would want done with it!)

I wouldn't think of that in 100 years. Too bad the wife is kind of an audiophile, so I'm not sure I would be able to find one to meet her requirements.

The stereo we got has a USB input, RCA input (including video for the 2" display) and a 1/8" stereo input...so I suppose we could connect it to a touch MP3 player and fake it.

Did you save the magnifying screen for solar brewing?

Google that.

That is so cool. I don't know if I'm enough of a mad scientist to do that...although I am an engineer so that may be close.

I did save the lens, although I didn't know that was what it was.

I think the only things that we haven't saved yet are some of the PCBs. We plan on reusing the power button to power a relay which will turn the stereo on and off. I also removed the RCA inputs from the PCB in the back of the TV to use on the inputs. The aesthetic pieces (screen trim and speaker cover) and the roll out piece that housed the channel and volume buttons are the only other things I can think of off hand that we're reusing.
