Car Maintenance App

New app in progress! Hopefully it won’t take months to complete. Should be pretty simple. Especially since this app is going to be primarily for me - and I’m not going to worry too too much about the UI elements.

This allows using different kinds of filters and for the filters to be replaced. The parts involved were manually reverse-engineered on paper with the device and a set of good digital calipers. The replacement parts were designed in Autodesk Fusion360 and 3D printed on a Prusa i3 MK2.
