So I have slowly been getting into all of this stuff. I am a mechanic full time and love cars, love going fast. I have a hot rod that have built a 800hp motor for and it runs GREAT I just hate that I have 800 toggle switches on my dash. And gets confusing. I already programmed a Arduino to control my transition and works good. A trans controller was almost 600$ and I did it for like 50$. So now I wana make a interface that will control a 16 relay board. I have already purchased a 10.1 touch screen with the touch shield. I have a Arduino due, mega, and a r3 Bluetooth one, I have a 16 relay board, I’m just not great at the programming. Willing to pay a small fee if someone could help me make a touch interface to make it all work. I have an idea of what I want it to look like. Can draw it out if someone is interested

I am willing to help. First thing I would need to know is the details of which display and shield you have. Then I can see what libraries I can find to support them.
Perhaps look into using a RaspberryPi for the display and GUI (front end/interface) side of things.. that communicates to an Arduino.. (or even uses the RPi I/O pins directly?)
But get some good shielding and powersupply for the RPi. if it's to operate on a car's battery while the engine is running
