But their custom lens has other dimensions than a stock one doesn‘t it? I think to fit the screen better?

Correct, the borders are a little thicker so you don't see the screen bezels. The screens aren't a perfect fit so you'd see a little bit of the screen bezel without a custom screen lens

A little bit is a little bit of an euphemism :lol:

Just an update. We've had photos of the lens and are now awaiting shipment! After that we will start shipping the kits.

Any word on the guide or image? I have my board populated based off wermy's video and anything the board indicates, but front two resistors I was unsure of. But the image I need for final testing. Thank you in advance.
Test... Break... Repeat... :roll:

Hey dude, the image will be out once the kits start rolling out, which two resistors were you unsure of? I can verify for you if necessary.

Oh, I thought I remember reading they would have it out a little while ago and then once I saw Wermy's video I was really confused.
But 3r and r2 on the front above and also to the left of the screen. The rest have either the value listed or a table like on the back of the board.
Thank you.

Hey dude, 3R is your 3 ohm resistor from the Arrow BOM and the one labelled R2 next to the screen is your 1.5K ohm resistor from the arrow BOM, sorry for any confusion there!

For future reference, 3R, 100R 560R etc... all mean the resistance rating, (3 ohm, 100 ohm, 560 ohm) whilst R1, R2, R3 are just labels the EDA software assigns.
