Really good stuff Dave I have wanted to do something similar but am hopeless with how to put them together.

A couple of things you night like to include is a warning against using an analogue meter as it injects volts for its function and that volts should be +/- 5% of the stated voltage.
A good link to include would be this

The blue wire on the 24-pin connector should have -12 volt. Not +12 volt, as the figure shows.
