    I am also making progress! I have received the longer flatflex for the LCD panel buttons. (to the right on the pic)

    Next step is to fit the main pcb into the BM and measure up the signals to the motor and from the sensors.

    I needed this to be done before I can order the pcb.

    nice! so let me ask you...the long flex cable (on the right) will be connected to your pcb?

    Correct. And then I will let the pcb simulate a series of button presses at startup to make sure the LCD panel gets into the correct state. Well, that is the plan anyway :-)

    yea, they work great together!, a little difficult when spraying bigger panels though because the texture starts to become non-uniform, and then you have to sand down the texture because it becomes rough, but it looks like you did a great job!

    W36 - I build and verify the pcb design
    W37-38 - I write the code. Don't know how long it will take depending on feature list. It could be a great idee if you get a silabs eval kit at 69USD so that you will be able to upgrade sw.
    W39 - Sending pcb to you!

    I guess schedule might slip, but then I will let you know. Ok with you?
    I have to leave for 10 days, and I already have some delays. I have not yet ordered the pcb's, and I am not completely done with review.

    2 weeks delay, sorry.
