    I think to create an optional button panel for my GT Wheel...So i decide to create a panel with a TM1638 , 8 push buttons and a female 6 mini Din connector to connect the GT Wheel on it.Installed and ready for test.

    New update : Install a display cover to protect the leds.I use "smoke" acrylic and cover it with carbon vinyl.So the digits are more realistic.

    Is this mod for sale? I would be interested.

    I would suggest rounding off the top corners, otherwise beautiful!
