The piece looked quite accurate. It would have been even nicer if the author had given some sense of the complexity involved in this project, without any support from Nissan.

Sorry but where is the SOC meter in the picture in the article? I don't see it.

She may not have used my images for lack of permission (not that she asked) - the last time she used a video of mine without, it was one that I didn't really want the whole world to have access to, and I'm ashamed to say that I ripped her a new one for doing so. But, that said, there are a couple of other pictures of finished kits available on the forum that I haven't posted.

While the cardboard version is certainly interesting, it might have been nicer if she had used a photo of the finished version so that those who are not in the know would realize that it is a much more refined device...
