Ultimate LED Ranger HVAC Project

Started making myself a PCB board today to light up my HVAC.



I removed the black sticker. I plan on using the white style. I'll paint the panel white later so you can't see the inner rings that locate the new sticker.





Scanned the panel into CAD, and redrew it to get a good pattern of where the LEDs need to go.

I tested the fit, everything looks really good. Should provide intense lighting with no variation in brightness anywhere.

pictures of the exterior LEDs? No - they are too bright at night, it dosen't come out well. Like trying to photograph the sun. Only can take photos of them at daytime.

No, the keypad is OK, just me…
The Pad is new to me and I am not used to it, fingers are too big and screw things up a little and then the iPad decides what it wants to do.

Something I need to get used to.

Let me know when you finish your Heater Panel, I am interested in how it works out, I might need to use the method on my dash gauges.
