Rotary 3 position spring return switch for previous/next page on screen is in. Now modify it to Amazon style. #evconversion #volvoamazon #carbuildersolutions
Designing the custom bezel Amazon style for display previous/next knob. Any suggestions where to best have these made? Chrome plated 3D printed brass is quite expensive (EUR 52.00).
Although the V70 switch modification was successful I decided not to use it, looks too modern. Newest plan is to use original switches or modify aftermarket switches with knob and bezel. Or hide switch off dash if less important. #volvoamazon
Modification successful! Four extra wires and now switch works independently and left/right as well. Up/down not needed. #evconversion #volvoamazon #volvov70
Modifying a V70 mirror switch to use it as a joystick to interact with the screens. #volvoamazon #evconversion #arduino #ecumaster
