friend of mine (with my old Rx7) has a plotter I could use, I'd just have to get the supplies and do a design

Well a couple bucks on stickers is better than $8 per unit printing from polycase

What kind of stickers are you thinking of?  Just something that says "Lil black box, www.lilbb.com" or something?  Perhaps you can get something printed up at Office Depot, Staples, etc on Avery paper labels.. probably cost you $5 for a stack of them

I did vista print, super easy. I'll do vinyl later xD

Paid PCB assembly today, hopefully I see the units within 3 weeks.

Got the wires, man they look great. Getting super stoked about this whole thing

Updated wiki to add wire color, need to add a harness purchase on the site now ^_~

I'm sure that would make the installs a lot more straight forward

Well I got my boards in, and they look fabulous. Except the missing component ... I didn't notice that they removed an item from the BOM for whatever reason.. guess I'll find out later tonight since the offset in time.

And eagle basically f'd me on a transistor. Apparently it placed a SOT23 in EBC, which is totally the wrong damn footprint, its supposed to be BEC / 1-base, 2-emitter, 3-collector. Guess I should have actually looked over this stuff. I can de-solder it and mount it upside down since the pins come out the middle anyways.. but DAMN.

Bluetooth is working. I need to find a better diode, the one I picked out I guess has too much forward voltage or some crap, cause I can't communicate without jumping it out, and yes it is in the right direction :)

Try an germanium diode.. small Vf and good for low current.. Perhaps a Shottky would work as well

For the transistor, can you get the one with the right footprint instead?

Nah no one sells reverse sot23 anymore. I'll just update the board design. It's not the end of the world, it isn't difficult to de-solder the transistor and flip it upside down.. already did one and checked bluetooth and it's working as intended.

The diode is 1206, so I'll just buy a few different types until I find one that works lol.

I'll do vinyl stickers for you. been running a Roland color camm at work.
I'm going to do some some magnetic backed ones for the wife in the next few weeks.
Be happy to do some for you as a way of saying thank you.
