Not sure where to find connections for builders in my area. I've been on/off start/stopping my build for years and stuck in a repeating: research, test concepts, vague plan, acquire hardware loop.
Main reason for it is that my research has not been able to convince myself that what I want to do is feasible. Hoping that there are people around that I can have a chat with over their success. Especially with co-ordinating arduino MCs for various gauges.
