Parts List

Bill of Material

While starting the build of my second Flux Capacitor, I've decided that I should generate a complete list of parts I used. When you only build one of something, you don't really have a need to generate a list, but as soon as you want to make a second, you realize that a list would have been handy. So, while building my second FC, I figured I might as well keep track of what parts I used, where I got them and how much I paid.

I'm not sure I really want to know what I sunk into it and here's to hoping my wife does not read my web site!!! This is a work in progress, so I'll let you know when it's complete.

Bill of Material List

I've provided links to the off the shelf parts where applicable.

I was able to scrounge many of the misc electronics (resistors, switches and wires) so you can save some money on these items. Hopefully you have a stash of parts as well.

The Key FOB Reomte is no longer available. I am looking at alternatives as I build my second FC. I will update the list. So you should not purchase the RF Receiver listed below, as you will not have a remote to pair it with.
