Impressive bit of work Tawy.

What is your intention with this project, other than producing them for your person GT? Are you planning on selling them?

Cheers!
Good to know you're out there making and selling them. I'll have to inspect the boards on my GT's and see if they need replacing.

That back silkscreen is amazing.  I had to repair the traces on mine to get it working years ago, wish I had one of these then!

Repairing your actual original board is of course the best solution, my boards are for those who have no other alternative. like him :

@Tawy, I know this is an old post, but any chance you'd still be making these?

Thanks!

I'm still making these, my last post is not so old...
I sell them on ebay (more expensive because of the fees) but it's the old version.
You can PM me when you want if you need one, and you'll get the last revision with the cool silkscreen :)

I've updated the board with a new function, it's now compatible with an external controller !
It's almost plug and play, you have to remove the tuner connector and replace it with this mini din8 controller connector for japanese controller.
I've put a little 3D printed ring to make it looks likes just you can see below.
The little half rounded PCB is used to block the connector in place on the shell.
Some solder is needed on the connector and the little PCB, when is place you'll need to melt a little bit the solder and the connector is well fixed to the shell.


This new board is 30 instead of the 20 for the one without external controller mod.
