Hello All,

My name is Tino and I'm excited to be here! It almost reads like an AA
meeting intro, doesn't it? :drunk:

I was born into the kit car world about 6.5 years ago when stumbling
upon a second hand GTM Gen. 1 build in the Toronto area.

At the time it had been my goal to restore a classic car (1st Gen Camaro)
but my friend showed me a photo of the GTM and I had to have it.
Quirks and headaches aside, it's coming along slowly.

My geeky side began developing an LCD system to replace the mechanical
gauges to resemble more of supercar interior. After posting some of my
progress on forums, the messages started pouring in...

One thing led to another and now I'm producing LCD Gauge Systems.
A forum member suggested that I check out GT40.com and here I am!

The Superlite designs are spectacular. As a matter of fact, my eyes
were set on the SL-C before purchasing my current kit. One day, I may
have to try my hand at the SL-C!

That's it for now, talk to you soon,
Tino

Welcome, Tino. I've been following the progress of your display system since the beginning on the GTM forums, and hope you build a version that works in the smaller confines of the SLC dash.

The feature set is pretty robust, and the ability to customize the screen is cool!

Thanks Will,

If you (or anyone else) can provide the cluster dimensions, I'm sure that a
solution can be made available.

The current screen sizes are:
- 10.1 (8.5 x 5.32)
- 9 inch (8.3 x 4.9)
- 7 inch (6.89 x 3.9)

I'm currently working on getting quotes for widescreen 16:4 aspect ratio
displays that measures about 9" x 3.5" and 11" x 5".

Thanks! I've added some pictures now that I'm over 10 posts.

More to come soon as I'm developing some new options for door poppers, and seat warmer controls.

Rod,

The main dash screens are about 0.450" thick and the console screen is 0.600" with the
video connector clearance considered.

They are not very water resistant from what I can tell.






I'm also checking with suppliers to get a screen with an enclosure. They are
much more expensive, but they don't require the user to make custom bezels.
