Time for another update, I've been working on the Mr2/Ferrari dial backs for the mr2 modified instrument cluster. I've used INKSCAPE to produce version 1.0
Because I've drawn the dial backs, every component of the drawing is configurable for a correct fit and alignment against the mr2 circuit board.
The lay method has been tried and tested by a youtuber called 'more molecules' I'll make a couple of changes to free up more colours, but it'll be basically the same.
very pleased with the result so far
Cheers

Well, I'm into the 11th year of the project, could it be ready for Stoneleigh 2020, doubt it. The longest DNA build ever

Hi Steve, that's why I sold my DNA dial back, I changed my mr2 instrument cluster to mimic the f430 instrument cluster around 5 years ago, the reworked circuit board now has the gauges, mil lights, and speedo closer to the f430 positions.
I've still got to do the fascia cover like yours, but that's some time off yet.
