Where to buy MPGuino kit?

I was looking at Spiffie's site and noticed that they no longer sell the MPGuino kits. I'm wondering then where I can get one in kit form with a pre-programmed chip so that I don't have to burn one myself.

I think your only option there would be to order one of the pre-assembled units and request that it be sent unassembled.

Why is it that you want a kit rather then an assembled unit?

I wanted the ability to customize a few things and the kit form had them already done that way ( I want front buttons instead of top mount so I can put it in the dash). I can probably solder my own circuit board, but am not really sure I can rewire it to put the buttons on the front instead of the top.

I prefer the front mount buttons also. The switches are normally open so you can easily add alternate switches in parallel with the board mounted switches.

I have made some mpguinos with custom layout. Buttons can be front-mounted - small PCB for mounting buttons remotely is included.
