    To all my customers and prospective customers, do to the overwhelming demand in the last few months. I have decided to continue my little hobby of making these boards through the end of the year. Stay tuned for the Rev 4 of the PCB.
    Mean while, I have 7 stock boards left in stock.

    Finally installed my switch I ordered weeks ago. Was a breeze using the pdf on your site. Came out great too! Tried to take some pics, but they all came out crappy, maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

    Stoked to hear youl be making more LED boards.
    Question: are the LEDs the same PLCC-2 1210 / 3528 SMDs as the guage cluster?
    I was considering buying whatever color you had available and customizing it.

    But if your making more can i be the first order request!?
    I Just changed my guage cluster to red/white,

    Thanks in advance

    I increased the R7 to a 2 watt SMD pads, so it easier for me to solder, I had a few units where the current limiting resistor was soldered poorly because the pads were too small for the resistor I was using. In order for me to ship Rev3 boards, I had to slightly lift the resistor to make sure there was ample solder under the resistor so it would not fail in the field (Cold Solder Joint). So I increased the the foot print, and now it will be more manufacturable.
    Always improving!!

    Wiki:
    (Cold Solder Joint)
    The most common defect when hand-soldering results from the parts being joined not exceeding the solder's liquidus temperature, resulting in a "cold solder" joint. This is usually the result of the soldering iron being used to heat the solder directly, rather than the parts themselves. Properly done, the iron heats the parts to be connected, which in turn melt the solder, guaranteeing adequate heat in the joined parts for thorough wetting. In electronic hand soldering the flux is embedded in the solder. Therefore heating the solder first may cause the flux to evaporate before it cleans the surfaces being soldered. A cold-soldered joint may not conduct at all, or may conduct only intermittently.

    Yes they are PLCC-2, When I get the new rev of boards I will be happy to customize you a board. The new boards will be available in about a week.
