It has been a while since our last tutorial and log, I sincerely apologise for the long delay, however we have been really busy with work and our precious baby girl is growing up faster than we could ever anticipate. I try and manage to slip-in a little chunk of time I could to try and create all the little things for this hobby, so even if it’s slow, it is finally nearing completion
This projects have been going on for a while and it is still an ongoing process.
It has been a rock and roll experience, many ups and downs. Had to re done the full sheet the second time on a thicker sheet for structural support and building the mount from galvanised square tube (including learning how to weld in a fortnight), getting the welding machine, cutting,welding, sanding cleaning and painting it.
Well this video represents a milestone of what the dash have become, from ideas into cardboard template and into realisation, not complete yet but it is a milestone nonetheless.
It is still missing the Voltage gauge, water pressure and oil pressure, I figured since symprojects board have not yet fully support Spek pressure and Voltage gauges, none of them will function and pull any proper data from the sim, so blank spaces are there for future upgrade.

Connecting the DC talk button on the dash I had to use the “bypass female connector” of the button itself. I had to re-wire the inside a little to make it connects to the BBI-32. once done. when the button is plugged in , it acts as a talk button.
I hope you liked it
