I have looked into doing just that, but problem is the display is a bit smaller than what is out there. As far as the pro mini, I was trying to keep the cost down. LEDs are on a delay after the button push.Maybe look into using an OLED and a Arduino Pro-Mini or something.. can control all your leds/lights.. as well the TEXT
Spray paint. It doesn't look that great in those pics above, mainly due to me being in a hurry when I painted them. It started raining so touching wet paint is a no no and ruins the finish. smhDid you brush paint the silver finish or use a spray can?
Yes. I ordered several from amazon and a few other places and it seems that I will be building one using the leds. Not hard to do, but I was hoping for something close. I will build a test leds display and just order a board based off my circuit.Are you saying the window/display areas is smaller than the screens available?
