    Mate ... very happy how it looking but just so slow a process when it has so many different function's ... Few times I've got it near finished and found a problem that can only be fixed by total removal of fascia that's disconnect all switches 7 bottom 11 top one's a pain in the brain ! But it will all be worth it SOON ! once up and running I will go through its list of functions its quite long... :-) 351 :-)

    The top right missile switches with the fake carbon look are having green transperent covers, they have 2 blue LEDs and the rest are green LED's .. the 5 red power ones have red lights...

    When you live in the bush ( of Australia ) its so hard to find anyone interested in electronic's of any description.. All goes over their head or in one ear and out the other ! Even basic stuff , It is good to know some of you guys all those miles away have an interest in my crazy build... If it was too easy I would not have enjoyed designing + building it... 351.. thanks you guys... :-)

    The new 24v converter is on its way.. .. last little one was just that LITTLE, it ended up fryed ! So now I've got x2, 30amp 13.8v from 24v converters using them parallel so 60amps constant at 13.8v should be a lot better than the small 12v unit... the power supply is great but I'm getting 2 of the 80amp megga watt ones to upgrade it to... With my switching set up you can turn power supply off and 24v converters on with no pulling of plugs or sliding unit out, just flick a switch.. part of why I've used missile switches so its harder to make a mistake or bump switches into on possie .. its been fun to wire up ! Lol.... 351 :-)... have antenna mast done by this arvo... :-)
