Good stuff. I'd always liked the idea of having one but with no space for it the wife wouldn't be too happy.

I'd seen stuff like this before on this website:
https://www.opensimrigs.com/collections/wheel-display

They had this which is for the LCD screen I have:
https://www.opensimrigs.com/collections/wheel-display/products/sim-display-enclosure

Was tempted to order one but not at that cost + shipping.
so, doing a lot of unsuccessful web searching for print designs of the OSR and the raspberry ebay case, I've come up with something....maybe. If I could get the exact dimensions of the front panel (and if you need the little cut outs) I could extend a bracket from it to screw into the wheel base. maybe add a curve to the top, leave an opening for the shift lights or whatever. so long as you're happy with the current position though

Nice. I think with the ebay case the screen sits in those little notches I can't remember 100% now. It has a port on the back for when using with a Pi which is why the OSR one is so deep. I assume it has the two plates as the backplate holds it all in.

The LEDS on the CSL Elite base are pointless, can't see them with either rim I have  ;D I did read there was going to be a firmware update to disable them but haven't seen it.

I don't see any, and I've been looking in the mirror all morning. ::)

I was thinking this plate would replace the one you have carbon wrapped. The rest of the pi box you have would remain the same and basically sit in the same position it is currently, only it would be bolted to the wheel base through the new plate. How do have it mounted now, double side tape? Only going by the pictures you posted...

Ah gotcha! Using Velcro at the moment.

hey, if you're still using sim hub, a good dash here https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/jrt-dashboard-for-simhub.20658/
