Using DPI topper with other display

Hi, 

I'd like to use the DPI topper with another display module (specifically, the 3.5 inch lq035nc111). I already know that these can be hooked up to DPI (I've done it with a different interface PCB), but the store listing specifically mentions display sizes of 4.3 inch and up. Is there any reason why it wouldn't work? I'm aware I'd have to change the configuration files to make it work, that part shouldn't be a problem.

That LCD has an entirely different pinout, so it won't work with the 40-pin DPI topper.

I do have some Topper PCBs on the way for 54-pin LCDs, and I plan to sell them if the tests come out good.

Ah bummer, I was hoping they'd be fairly standard. I guess I can use that Adafruit breakout board, but wiring it up will be a pain. Guess I can have an adapter made. I also have a 4.3" 270x480 though, can you maybe post the part numbers of the modules you sell so I can check if mine is the same? Long shot, but I'd prefer hooking it up like this over using the composite board (or buying a new one when I still have an unused part). Better image and lower power.
