Not much in the way of progress. The garage is cleaned and the transmission and parts get dropped off tomorrow so everything can be sent out to be cryo treated.
I have made some progress on my digital instrument cluster. Now that the final batch of LED matrices has arrived I can begin basic construction of the display components. I have had some problems with my PIC programmer so I haven’t been able to test / program the electronics in the way that I wanted. It appears that I will need to invest in a real pic programmer for this project.
Here is my extra Vanagon cluster cut out and ready to be fiber glassed, there is going to be a smoked sheet of lexan between the face and the matrices but here is a first look at the 24×72 total size display (27 8×8 matrices):
Seeing these two pieces meet for the first time has been huge for me motivationally, already brainstorming for the fully color version of this I will be building for the Corrado!
