The temporary HDMIPi setup (awaiting the Raspberry Pi B+ before getting everything wholly contained in the HDMIPi casing). The display itself is really nice. Bright, crisp, 1280×800 display with good view angles (horizontal better than vertical). Next step is to mount the B+ into the case and pick up a cheap keyboard+trackpad combo (wireless). Once…

Next on the hit list was the interior lights….. gone is the yellow tinge after fitting LEDs. I used these. The end result is really nice, although the picture doesn’t really do it justice. Next will be the foot well lights!
