I wanted to build the Simpson's TV Project by Brandon Withrow. It was difficult to find the parts without a detailed list, but eventually I found what I believe are the correct parts (I am putting one together with the "New" Iuniker display, and the latest Raspberty PI Zero W 2.
I hope this list is useful to some people who would like to build the project.

Different Iuniker Display Board?

The display board that I received 4 rows of pins (2 at the top, and 2 at the center) and had the following information silkscreened onto the bottom right: MZDPI-VGA-ZERO 2018.3.28 VERSION: B+

The changes from Brian's instructions are documented on this PDF or this SVG file. I have just gotten as far as where the screen asks for a login (I haven't been able to connect to WiFi yet, but that is not a concern with the display.

NOTE:Because the middle row of pins (where you will solder the Pi) are short, you may want to solder the wires on these pins (as close to iuniker PCB as possible) in a tight loop of wire, with shrink tubing
soldering the PI on.
