QUESTION: Dear Skip

Thanks
Prashant

ANSWER: Prashant,
  Watch my mouth, we are going to have a test. LCD are NOT very visible in Sunlight. If you have a cell phone, take it out in the sunlight and see how easy it is to see. It isn't. LED is what you need to display outside in the Sun.
  So to answer your question, the answer is YES but it is VERY IMPRACTIAL and NOT GOOD.
  I hope this helps.

QUESTION: Dear Skip

Thanks.

My query was is it possible to display Bus stops names on Led / Lcd display panel in a moving Bus which is installed Inside the Bus?.

As examples Sebastian Park, Trentbridge, Mark College are some Bus stops names where Bus halts for the passengers to board or leave the Bus.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Prashant,
  My error. I misunderstood your question. Of course it is possible to display stops INSIDE the bus. One small problem I see is that, if one is sitting off to the side, it may be difficult to see the display if it is in LCD. Depending on the quality of the LCD, sometimes sitting off to the side make it difficult to see. I still think LED lighting would be the best choice and I think it would be cheaper too.  
  Good luck,
Skip

Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip
