Update on Flaps Controller

I’m waiting on the circuit cards to come back from the fab, likely slightly delayed due to the holidays. In the interim, I worked on honing the process for painting and etching the fascia panel. My second iteration is looking better than the first, but I still need to dial in the combination of paint layers, laser power, and etching speed. Today I made a test panel to try out different combinations of the above to find the best match. I’m very pleased with the results, so I expect the next iteration of the fascia panel to look great!

Backlighting looking more uniform, but a little bit of light bleeding through from over-cleaning; need to increase the thickness of the black paint layer
