Really nice work! I love how you are incorporating both screens in the cluster. For a Camaro that is even more appealing since placement for the scan gauge is limited and imo usually looks a bit out of place. Cant wait to see some updates!

I agree. I wanted to avoid the pillar gauges and really any external gauges period. Having that scan gauge will allow me to put a boost gauge in the stock cluster in place of something like the volts gauge ect because I can get that reading from the scan gauge. Theres also an input for a wideband, so that eliminates a need for that gauge as well.

Updates will be dependant on parts now. The zif connectors I need for the screen are on backorder. Next update will likely be the frame that secures the screen to the pcb board, that is going to be 3d printed. Once I get final mounting of the screens I can have the gauge face made.

I should have an update in a couple weeks. The zif connectors for the oled screen that were backordered just came yesturday. Sending all the componenents to my friend in Germany this week. I have all the bitmap images done and my font files converted to bitmaps, so it should go relatively smooth.

.... In the meantime, here a look at the graphics im designing for his larger 240x320 tft display. Its going in a fiero cluster. I will eventually be moving to 2 of these screens with a speedhut tach in the middle of them.

At this point electronics are just a hobby. Im teaching myself how to build smd circuits and circuit boards as well as programming the screens with the help of the friend I have in Germany. If it werent for him Id have to add about 6 more months trying to figure the code out. Ive got some cool stuff coming with the smd leds and interior lighting after this project is done, a hint being our window and door lock switches arent backlit....yet Ive got a degree in graphic design, so for this project its nice to beable to handle all the design work and fab work start to finish.

Yeah coding is fun. Looks like its a fun project, and you will be making some cash off it if you chose to make more. Good work, like I said I am more temped to buy my buddies 97+ dash now to integrate this. Too bad its not ebony color though..
