I really want them now..

How bad are they in the day.. will I still know what speed I am doing?

Also, the dimmer wouldn't work anymore either would it?

since the LED's are much lower heat and current... couldn't you do some creative installing and hook two up in the important places where there was only one before?

Nice steering wheel, but what did you do about the cruise control?

yeah, thats what I figured..

cruise control stops me getting road rage.. that and my dvd stereo.... I can't do without the CC , but I've thought many times about moving to dash mounted switches for it..

there is one member on here who mounted the switches in the center console and just ran longer wires.. looks the trick, well worth a try if you wanna go aftermarkety, or even make up a side mount thing like the EF/EL's have

yeah, that sounds pretty good..

they are actually the same as power windows switches, and I have a box of them left over from my work at various car audio/accessory places.

might add that to my list, would be a shame to leave that wheel with it's lovely ford logo on my boat.

Ride: EB1 Fairmont Ghia T5 Wagon

Location: Seven Hills, Sydney
NSW, Australia

I am in the process of fitting a wheel to my car. I am building a custom bracket to mount between the wheel and the boss and using Micro Switches.

I cannot claim the idea as mine.

Here is a link to the guide I am using as a base for my conversion.
