Lots of car posts today… John writes –

“Here are instructions (and pre-compiled PDF) for making an automotive message book. It fits in the glove box and has 14 standard large-font messages printed forward and reverse (for reading in mirrors) like “Your tire is flat”, “Your high beams are on” or even, simply, “Sorry.” I’ve wanted an in-car LCD for this purpose for years, but there’s something appealing about a simple DIY analog solution to the problem.

I’ve also included my source material to encourage others to modify the booklet to suit their needs.”Link.
