Well my computer died and needed to get another. Still working on this project. Just have to recover and rebuild some of the files. I will keep everyone updated.

Working

Well I now have a working Touch Screen. I am able to turn relays on and off via the touch screen. Now that I have proved that it is possible I have to order a larger screen and build the relay box.

Parts Ordered

I have ordered all the parts needed for this project. Still need to get the Reay Box project parts ordered that this will interface with. I did order a 2.4 inch Touch Screen. That is just to make sure everything will work. Once I get it working I will then order a larger screen.

Update

A bit of an update on the project. I have the list of parts finalized. I am living on disability pay so have to wait until the beginning of the month to order the parts. I have not given up on the project. It will just take some time. But once I have the parts in hand, I will be able to assemble this in a short time. Thanks for your patience and following along.

Jack commented on Bill Of Parts:

Hi, sound good. Are the lights going on the roof?

Bob replied:

The picture of my Jeep on the project page shows my lights. I have two on my Bull Bar, Two on the fenders by the windshield, a 52 inch light bar above the windshield, rock lights underneath. I also plan on putting two on the back for reverse lights that will also tie into the box so they can be controlled both by a switch and the reverse light circuit.

Jack replied:

Ah yes, I can see now. Looks good. Looks like a big wiring job!

Ollie replied:

Looks cool!, A friend stuck 4 rally style lights to the grill of his mini (back in the 90s), they were very powerful. However the police stopped him, and made him disable two of them!
