[DMCForum] Re: Left Field Question - Steering Column



The original filming car used a 9v battery. However, even that 
required come cutting of the streering wheel frame to fit the 
battery.

I'm trying to make operable switches for this part of the car. 
Anyone could show off some pretty lites - thats incredibly easy. I'd 
prefer to do something a little more intense. Also, once I have the 
problem solved if could also be applied to more regular Delorean 
applications (ie, sound system controls, or perhaps cruise control 
switches).
