VU Meter

Hi again,
This one is a 'work in progress'.

Have this fairly complex audio project in mind, and part of it can make good use of a VU meter.
Found a cheap one on Amazon and knew just who can make a good case for it.

Took some measurements and laid out this sample part.

This is the front view.
The LED assemblies have a 'step' built into them. That means little adjustments will have to be made in the print to get it all to fit snug.
This is close but not exact. Story of my life.

The back is much more forgiving.
Going to use 2-56 screws to mount the unit.
The half inch screws I have were a hair too long and punched through the front.
May end up switching to a recessed 'hex cap' screw and using a nut/washer combination on the back.
