A few other things arrived in the mail recently:
1. A CANable
, which is possibly the cheapest ($25 USD) and tiniest pre-made product I've seen which uses socketCAN. It's based on Eric Everchick's CANtact
and is sufficient for bus dumps and monitoring. The following image is linked from capable.io
2. A sweet 12.3in LCD display. This would be submerged in the gauge display shell and there's clearance in the dash for the exposed corners. The original Tacoma plastic cover will be chopped in favor of a something custom to frame the display dimensions.
