    YouTube has closed captioning that's auto-generated, it's fairly accurate if you select the language correctly on the video. Same stuff behind their "OK Google" algorithm. Should help non-Italian...

    So, this actually airs on national Italian TV? And your car has been in four episodes so far? That's amazing! I don't know of a more regular TV star, minus obviously BTTF cars and maybe the guys with...

    LED's don't burn out but they do have "half-lives". Basically, after a certain period of time, they get half as bright, similar to how radioactivity works just with light. I'm sure I've shared this...

    Wow! I remember when people didn't even believe you were really into DeLoreans and thought you were a scam artist because you were in Italy, how far you've come! Great to hear from you again!

    Two family road trips spaced 4-5 months apart? Maybe I'm missing something, but what's wrong with driving his car to CA for the 4-5 months he's there then back again when he's done? It just seems...

    Actually come to think of it, I can breadboard it out, I still have all the parts I think. Just need to find my original schematic and figure out what the 555 timer discharge capacitor values were....

    New boards. With how cheap they are to make, you could probably use SMD components (including LED's) and have them made at a low quantity pre-assembled for cheap. Just use larger SMD components to...

    Glad the visual helped :) The two gaps at each end of the spring are the part that makes me say I would not use that preset generally speaking. Ideally it fills in that area, and one of my presets...

    Figured it out, FreeCAD wasn't associated with STP for some reason, but exported STL just fine. Here's how Slic3r automatically interprets the slicing for the peg sideways. This is the last layer...

    Why? It's actually incredibly common and I've seen it damn near everywhere. Open source is open source, it's when you make changes to the open source and refuse to feed that back into the pool that...

    That's exactly what I was going to recommend when I saw that pic. Y-shaped boards are VERY wasteful and nobody wants to manufacture them (I've tried). Even if the spacing is off, videobob has the...

    Were there any wires on the board? I have occasionally heard of (and seen) circuitboards where a trace is cut and a wire is soldered onto it. This would probably work well here given the low current...

    Okay, so that's why mine doesn't change brightness at all. That was a very early mod after finding out several HVAC bulbs were blown and ground wires were just hanging there, ready to short any power...

    I don't think it's as easy as flipping a switch, but if you want to rebuild the circuit entirely, it's actually not a complicated one. Look up "chaser circuit" online, the most robust ones use a 555...

    I assume your panel is unaffected by the resistor part, or accounts for it, given it's an LED panel? I haven't noticed any change in HVAC brightness but can check that too. My rheostat is entirely...

    I thought that was a full dollar when I wrote that, oops, you're right, that's a half dollar coin. Crap and I had two laying around too growing up that fascinated me, I should have known that one too.

    Actually that sounds correct to me now that you mention it. The HVAC panel is lit when the key is on, but the switch itself may still remain unlit until it's "dark out" (parking lights on). Good...

    "checked fuse" how? Visibly, or with a dedicated fuse tester / multimeter? Some fuses can fail without any clear visual indication that they've gone. I believe the fuse you're...
