Have An Idea

Recommended Posts

I had this sweet dream last night that when i got in my car i put my keys in the ignition and as i turned it a pop up panel (very similar to steves sat nav kit) comes out of the dash. on that panel was a Honda S2000 starter button, and a Guage pod plus some shift lights. then once the car was turned off it all went away.

Now this would be kinda cool, very trick and damn it i want it soooo badly now.

Problem is i know very little of how to make it work.

Steve - that motorised top tray that you made, could it be made to work with a carbon pannel instead of the screen?

Plus you could have your nitrous switches and pressure guages on it as well!!!

The motorised panel is possible, would need 2 servo type motors at low RPM.

As for the carbon top dash cover... :whistling: Send me a PM.

i would definately love to do this, not sure where to start on any of this realy. Electronics isnt my forte. but i suppose that the main thing is if the motors are powered from an ignition on feed, but as for the rest of it i just get confused.

I now wish i hasnt changed my aprenticeship from electronincs to mechanical design!!!

How about if you were to use a TFT screen, using a colour camera actually looking at some guages. That are located out of the way, under the bonnet in a black box for instance.
