    Do you have a price determined yet? Also, how much are the foot switches?

    I am currently thinking that the cruise kit will be $39.99. The pedal switches, if you need both, cost about $40-45. If you only need the brake switch, it will cost about $30 since the clutch switch is cheaper. The mini VCI cable costs about $20. So, you can have an entire cruise setup for about $100. I think that is pretty amazing considering the Rostra aftermarket cruise control kit for our cars costs $290, and then you have to install it which is way more work due to a lot more wiring.

    That's a crazy good price. I hope you are making something though with your time and materials put into it.

    Here is a small update. I got the new parts printed out, and test fit in the gauge bezel. Having issues getting the R to print nicely. It will get there though.

    That's odd about the "R". Software or hardware, do you think?

    Can you tell it: "slow down and pay attention here"?

    Even with the "R' not being perfect, the rest looks good. Again, great work on this. People better hit you up for this.

    Its hardware related. The nozzle is a set size. If it can't make a single pass at that width, it simply doesn't make the pass. I do not think I can do anything with the software. I am going to have to choose a new font, or make the text larger.

    Darin and I were talking this morning, and he suggested perhaps offering this kit as a true DIY kit. This would mean that I would sent you the parts, you solder it all up yourself. Obviously it would be cheaper this way. Would anyone be interested in that option?

    The cruise control kits are now available for pre-order! The cost will be $39.99 shipped.

    I have very minor tweaks to make to the switch face plate yet. That will be done quite shortly.

    The kits will contain my switch panel and some zip ties to hold the wire and connector in place. I will be writing up a big 'ol DIY on the entire process that tells what you do and don't need, what stuff to order, how to install everything, and how to reprogram the ECU.
