Good idea.  I don't really like the bullets but they are good for routing since it is a single connector.   Better if you can switch to more modern reliable blade/pin connectors.  Just cut and crimp.   The crimper from VC is a good deal.   BTW, the proto board is pretty thin as I see on your posting.  For production, we can plan to go thicker.

Cool, I was careful to mount it on foam rubber and in one pic is was slightly bent, I fixed that and made it flat. got 2K on the bike since install and all my electrical is working fine. I was planning to get the vintage connectors kit with the crimper and the various bullets and blade pin connectors for where I have 3-4 wires together etc.  Just needed to do it cheap for now, will spend the $$ over winter to make it better.

Weather resistant. Not weather proof. Best to mount them somewhere out of the elements. Final version will have an enclosure, which will help, but still best to keep as dry as possible.

Mine is out of direct weather, but it got a little dampness from 12 straight hours in the rain, didn't miss a beat, all my electrical was a ok. my poor plugs didn;t like it though and I was dropping cylinders on the last 2 hours. They are not powered through the FB-11 though LOL

Not quite. Having troubles with the enclosure. The company I originally was looking at won't be able to modify the enclosures the way we had hoped.

We have a couple of options at this point:
1.) Go with the original enclosure and end up with something larger than desired (about an inch too tall)
2.) Redo the board layout to fit a different enclosure
3.) Get some custom enclosures made (min quantity on this has been 1000 units in all the quotes I've received so far)

Currently looking for others ideas...  :-\

Not sure. I don't know too much about the manufacturing processes used, but I'm open to any and all suggestions.

You may want to take a look at the process. It has limitations but it may be an alternative.
