I don't think the lack of a logo is a big deal.  It looks like the space where it goes is smooth enough that we can apply our own decals if so inclined.

 

Thanks for all your hard work on this, bro.  I am chomping at the bit for it, haha.

Small update...... nearly

Small update...... nearly there guys.

The last parts arrived this week and I now have everything.

Pulled my prototype apart last night and re-soldered the LED connections in a different configuration for testing purposes. The intent was to have a simple setup that did not require removal of onboard LEDS and wouldnt create a parallel circuit with excessive current draw. The intent is now to have the new LED connected via a 560 ohm resistor in the harness to the high side of R1 (Power) and R2 (Status) and the low side of corresponding D1 and D2. This should limit the overall draw for that existing circuit segment to ~20mA. Physically tested it and I think the brightness is pretty close to original. I think its a better solution especially for those who didnt want to remove the onboard LEDs like I had originally done.

So that was good to get squared away. Can now finalise instruction manual.

Will post a photo of an actual logo less panel soon for people to make up their minds about. But in the meantime here is a mockup of the aluminium panel.

Unfortunately, folks will need to add their own logos if they desire which shouldnt be too hard.

 

Cheers

Dave

Finally got that manual into shape. Hope it clarifies whats included and whats not and how its all comes together.

I've been doing a lot of soldering.... 1 hack is alright....but 30 involves hundreds of individual wire stripping and tinning / soldering operations. But they are nearly complete.
