    Tried to fix my temp/compass display and solder the 510 resistor but my FAT fingers got in the way. What is the best place to send it in for repair,anyone?

    Get someone with skinnier fingers. Wherever you send it will charge an arm & a leg.

    Oh Damn! I tried to fix it but I lost the resistor. It's somewhere in my garage but who knows where.

    Anybody know a parts store where I can buy the resistor? I checked Digi-key but they don't stock it. It's a 51 ohm 1/2 watt in a 2512 footprint.

    TIA!!!
