Very easy.

Took me longer to find the switch I wanted to use & where I wanted to put it than the time to do the mod.

Cool. I'll probably get something neat off a PC modders site, it's all the same 12v DC kit. This one is too pricey, but I love those covered switches.... Comes of playing too many flight sims as a kid.

Might not want to mount that on the dash. Looks like an eject button

Actually, if I can find one with a red LED in it, I'm probably going to label it "Master Arm" Come to think of it, I should just mount two, as I want to add some extra lights.... They come in all sorts of colours!

Then again, I turn Hot Wheels cars into Mad Max-ian road warriors for shits and giggles (and wargaming).

Thanks.. & yep it's as plain as they come except for a/c & I think that is standard for the 2010s.


Is there a way to wire in a jack to the radio for my MP3?

The AC runs on defrost - that's one reason for this mod.

Edit: Although there are two reasons the AC is made to run on defrost:

- It keeps the compressor from sitting idle for a whole season or more
- The AC dries out the air to defogg/prevent fogging inside
