Vauxhall Vectra Instrument on a MEGA2560

Hi every one!

I’m new here. i have always wanted to make a car instrument work on the PC. my instrument is from a Vauxhall,Opel Vectra C 2006-2008 instrument witch is related to this CANBUS. i done a lot of research on this CANBUS and whats it all about. I’m planing to buy a CAN-BUS Shield and a MEGA2560 boards off Ebay. does anyone think they will do the trick.i also need a wire diagram if anyone has got one!? i cant find one anywhere and getting quite upset all over this. :disappointed_relieved:

Also there was a guy on Youtube that made a Ford Focus Mk2 instrument work with Dirt 3. i think its works the same like that. all i can i say really i have no experience with a Arduino and haven’t got a clue how to wire up instruments to it. anything that would help me would be much appreciated

Thanks.
