Cool idea! One question though: do you have any creative ideas on what do do with the LED emitter? I mean, you do have to have a line of sight from the LED to the actual component you are controlling, right?

well yeah.. i usually just drill a small hole somewhere in the center console or wherever and hot glue the led behind it. i've also managed to get it to work from inside a domelight housing before. kinda finicky, but that's prolly cuz i let it just emit the signal thru the clear plastic part. in hindsight, i prolly shoulda flush mounted the emitter into the domelight housing. who's gonna notice a 1/8" hole in a domelight housing right? oh well.. maybe next time. i did just pick up a new project car.. maybe i'll try it with this one.

cheers

Wow! Great idea - something to try on the next multimedia installation! But you HAD to use an Alpine remote? LOL! Kudos on the idea though - I'd never think of it!

Sounds like a cool little project.  I'll give it some thought.  ZAP superglue (thick) works great for filling those gaps and doesn't have to be mixed like epoxy, if you can find it. I believe most hobby shops carry it. Remote looks great!
