About Cars DIY Electronics DIY About Julian Rogers Random

Hi and welcome!

The purpose of this site is to describe some of the projects I have been working on. They are mostly connected with electronics (particularly Arduino based), (old) cars and DIY generally. Some are finished but many are on-going! Some work well but some have problems which need to be resolved. Hopefully, there will be something here of interest and, perhaps, even helpful to your project.
