Well... got the boards in Monday, finally got the time to assemble one last night. Yeehaw! Everything appears to be in order. The blue 7-segment display looks *sharp*.
I think I may have overspecified the shift light LED ( ) but I can dim it in software. Maybe even a user preference thing. We'll see. Other than that, everything looks good. I'll be starting on the firmware this evening, and I expect a little bit of hacking before it'll be ready to test.
I'll get pictures together as soon as I have some rudimentary code written that drives the LEDs (that is, right now I'm testing them with a piece of wire to simulate pins on the controller driving them ).
It's my intention to offer a custom start-up message to anyone who wants one, incidentally. I'll have a video of mine once it's ready
Also, I'll be converting my R6's gauge cluster from bulbs to LEDs while I've got it out. Anyone else with bulb-backlit clusters that wants to convert to LEDs, let me know. We'll work something out.
