    I thought I would have a go at building a liquid gauge into a B5 vent.
    The first storke of luck is that the vent inside size is the same width as the liquid PCB, the rest was childsplay.

    I went down to my local scrap yard yesterday and was able to buy 9 vents at £1 each, result.

    First, remove the movable vents from the back of the vent.

    Once removed it will look like this.

    Next use a hack saw to cut out the middle vents.

    After that sand the plastic flat.

    Next a quick spray of black satin to tidy it up.

    Next cut a fascia out of 1.5mm aly and paint back, (I will get some of these made up)

    Drop in the PCB and secure with a couple of dabs of glue.

    Then finally drop in the fascia.

    Job done.
