so this was brought up in a different thread, but i figured i'd share it here for anyone that might want to use it for their installs. this can be done anywhere you have a big enough chunk of plastic, like some center consoles or door armrests.

sorry about pic quality, but i did this on a whim at work so all i had on me was my camera phone.. haha. oh well, on with the project

step 1.. take the remote apart

posted_image

step 2.. trace upper shell onto desired location

posted_image

step 3.. start removing material (sucks when you leave your dremel at home)

posted_image

step 4.. test fit the piece. needs to be nice and snug

posted_image

step 5.. epoxy the pieces together, making sure to keep all epoxy on the front

posted_image

here's a shot from the back, showing the mounting rail sitting above the surface

posted_image

step 6.. slap on some bondo. i kinda over-did it, but oh well, that's what electric sanders are for

posted_image

step 7.. sand her nice and smooth, trying to get the pieces to blend together

posted_image

step 8.. paint surface and test fit the button pad to get an idea what the finished product will look like. i used some cool dashboard texture paint i had laying around

posted_image

step 9.. snap the remote back together again after extending the led outside the case. i just drilled a simple hole and ran the lines right thru. the same method could be used to extend the battery contacts, i just didn't care to in this project

posted_image

well that's it.. pretty simple, only took about 30 minutes to do (excluding the misc drying times of course) had this been for an actual car i woulda took a bit more time getting the final product a little smoother

anyways, hope this gives someone some useful ideas

Damn man, good idea. Creative juices are flowing. Of all the projects I have come up with, it never dawned on me to attempt this one. Excellent write up too bro; yours came out tight.

Thanks, I know that I'll be using this sometime in the near future.

thanks guys! glad to help inspire new ideas..

presonally, i'm thinking of doing this with an xbox controller into the center of my steering wheel.. then i just gotta come up with something for the top triggers.. nothing sweeter than sitting in gridlock kicking ass on halo! hahahahaha ... actually, this would be perfect for those long ferry lines/rides.

sidenote: wow.. a pinned topic. i'm honored

I think it shall be done with an X-box controller. I would definatly encourage you to figure out how to engineer that one. That would be out of the ordinary. You could probably pull it off if you completely fabed a whole new grip on an existing steering wheel. I could see a certain amount of ease of exposing the triggers but, gripping the controller with enough comfort to be able to play accurately...now that's the tricky part.

I see the trouble of ergonomics playing a role in this build.

But, thanks again for the build process. It deserves the pin.
