    • This small things sometimes takes a lot of time.

      On the park indicator you can try smaller power draining relay like solid ones BTS-555 or similar, the other way around is getting power from your button red led, colors goes through different wires and you can just take from button wires, if it also 5V then find 5V indicator and you're set.

        Thanks Vivo! I will have to look into it.

          • Almost a heart attack from the picture.

            An idea to check controller-inverter communication - in the previous video you've showed that power supply from controller is 0V, it doesn't feed. But it is designed to supply power to inverter communitating controller from main controller. Are you supplying it now? I had similar problem of non commincating arduino controller with TFT display touch screen controller - I had separate power supply and due to diffirence in voltage they could not communicate until I placed a common power source. Specialists explained that even small difference in voltage doesn't let digital packets to be understood by reading side of controller. Just an idea to check.

              Thanks for the suggestion. I will have to check it out.

              • Controller will still not talk to the inverter.

                Moving on to the center console

                        • Some nice fiberglass work, though I'm surprised that you're trying to modify the hood in the way that you are.

                          I'm pulling for you on the issue with the inverter or whatever the issue is. Looks like a real PITA. I'm not sure I'd have the same level of perseverance as you.

                            Why are you surprised? Would you recommend something different?

                            • Surprised simply because the hood is great looking as it is. Its a lot of extra work that won't look good in my opinion. But I guess its just that, a matter of opinion. Also, I agree that your other proposed approach might be better. The bubble look you created doesn't follow the overall geometric styling of the car. Something more angular would look better.

                                Got it. I felt like I needed to do something as I have my high voltage batteries right under these openings. Don't want to cause an issue while washing the car. I may revisit this in the future.
