I've recently gotten back into Sim-racing again with some of the OCAU crew (although I am more of a mobile chicane than a racer) and I've been working on building a REALLY nicely designed, machined aluminum pedal set (load cell and hall effect etc).. Anyway.. I happened to have the day off from work on Friday and was pretty bored because of the crappy weather so I went for a uber cheap, ultra thrown together mod for my G25 racing wheel.. I had one of Leo's old BU0710 shift and gear displays laying around and because I never really liked the bar graph type display and tiny little gear indicator, I decided I would make up a new PCB to mount 5mm LEDs and a 25mm high 7-segment display and interface it with Leo's original design. For the backing plate, I used a piece of scrap 3mm aluminium which I cut out with the jigsaw and carefully filed out the cutouts for the gear and rpm displays and then shot with a couple of coats of satin black to tidy it up a bit.. Because I didn't want to spend any money on this, I printed out a "carbon fiber effect" overlay which I covered with some clear contact and stuck the whole lot to the front, threw in some switches and mounted the modified BU710 in a small zippy box.. Anyway, this is the end result - not too bad considering it was built from essentially junk I just had laying around and it was all knocked up in about half a day.. My plan is to build a decent "F1" style wheel (which I've already started..) so it'll do until then.. Click to view full size! SIDE NOTE: It may not look like it, but the 5mm LEDs ARE actually all very much straight and aligned - just didn't want to photograph like that for me - I certainly am no photographer..
