I'm making a custom faceplate out of acrylic for my empeg to make it look like a classic radio for my Datsun 510 (bakelite knobs with chrome inlays, etc)

In order to get the design right, I need accurate (better than I can get with a camera) locations of the screw holes, two-function button/knob, screen, and IR sensor.

Does anyone have either technical drawings of the display board, or know where I can get them? I have AutoCad, Sketchup, GIMP, and Adobe software.

These may provide a decent starting point.
The scans were done at 300x300dpi, so each pixel in the images represents exactly 1/300th of an inch.

One could also try scanning the backside of the fascia on a flatbed scanner, in the same fashion.

I'm fairly sure there should be pictures of that around somewhere from back when 303, IIRC, did the aluminum fascias and knobs. Haven't been able to find them (but haven't been digging very hard or long)

Attached is a 2D DXF file of the top and bottom layers of the last version of the Mk2A display board. It should be exactly 1 to 1.

Here's one with the silk screens, which will be more useful.
