yesterday evening i started to integrate switches into the steering wheel
for paddle shift

the plan is to use an universal keyless door locking system
and use the open and lock function as up shift and down shift

and connect the switch leads to the remote and hide the remote behind the horn cap

the 8l90 transmission uses a single wire for tap up/down
controlled by a series of resistors

so i have to build a circuit with these resistors and 2 relays switches controlled by the receiver unit

And here I though my custom steering wheels were the top of the mark.....then you got to go and outdo me........Take what I did and improve on it for your application....All I can do is say it will be slick when completed.

You going to do your uncle's the same?

i thought you would chime in sorry for screwing up your fantastic work.
i was thinking for a while to do this had to find small switches that i liked
and would fit flush enough to my liking.

if i get this all to work i will do the same with the other steering wheel too

today i got the flippers cleaned up wet sanded and polished , then installed the new whiskers and rolled the edge over with my beadroller ( made a sleeve over the lower rol of the beadroller out of nylon to avoid damage or scratching the stainless and worked out real nice.

next up is to assemble them back together

also polished the rest of the stainless pieces ready for assembly

I think you're wise to refurbish the trim before the car is painted. If the paint was done you might be impatient to install before done properly.
