    so, I got this 7″ capacitive touch screen (although for the most part I won’t be using the touch screen part) and have a raspberry pi 3 (i use the internal bluetooth to connect with 2 ps3 controllers) Everything runs great however I hit a snag; it’s naked. If anyone knows/would like to help me out; i’d be glad to share measurements and anything you’d need to create an enclosure. There are 4 holes in each corner and I have plenty of screws and stuff to connect things.

    Do you have WrenchTurner’s gmail?


    I’m using an antique radio housing I got sans-guts at an auction for 7 bucks for a jukebox/pi project.
    In fact, maybe you can help me. I’m trying to figure out if I can connect an amp or amp+DAC with a 2.8″ PiTFT.
    The only ones I’m finding are both hats, and I don’t see a way to break them out such that I can confirm I won’t have a conflict for some specific pin. All seem to use the SPI pins for each unit, and I”m not sure they can share (fairly novice at this)


    as for the TFT screen; just use the hat; for the audio amp; you could get something like this
    (stero amp) and just solder the power (3.3v or 5v) and ground; then solder the audio out +L/-L, +R/-R on the Pi to this board and just solder in some speakers.
