    Very nice done! I'm running a 5" raspberry pi screen for more then a year without a housing. Need to start making one too.

    Nice one!

    When you connect the Nextion display to the Arduino board, can you use the rest of the arduino to connect it to buttons (to make a steering wheel with display)?

    Hi Pset, thanks for posting the list. I am building a 3d printed Mclaren Wheel and was thinking of going down the arduino route. (in the past I have used Leo Bodnar SLI-F1 and Z1 LCD Display).

    Would I be right in thinking this Arduino module would support buttons also and rotary encoders also?

    I notice the LED`s are daisy chained together, I take it software is used to configure which light does what depending on its position in the chain, or do they have some kind of address id built in?
