I got kinda bored of the standard green-ish A/C controls found on most Japanese cars produced in 90’s.
So one day I decided to give it a try and make something different. Make my Glanza a bit unique 🙂
After several attempts I decided lighting up the controls using orange LEDs (like the dash’s dials), and the temperature set knob using red and blue LEDs.
Approximately 18-20 LEDs were used in total to produce the following result:
All the LEDs are held into place with the help of a special mouldable plastic, which I made it to perfectly fit behind the controls. Too bad I only have normal airconditioning system though. I would love to have climate control. It would be easier to mod, as it contains less movable parts.
I found an EP91 Starlet climate control head unit on eBay several months ago. and I was about to purchase it. But then I discovered that there are plenty more sensors and control electronics involved in order to have such a system installed, therefore I quitted that idea 🙁
