OK Saab electical whiz-kids, try this one.

I love my 900. It's great. It's the best car I've ever owned, even with it's knackered rear suspension, blowing exhaust, front bushes worn down so much that the understeer is phenominal - especially in the wet - will it go round the corner, or will we go into that filed? Lets find out!

But the main thing that bugs me is the position of the window switches. Why put them there where no one can see them, opening the sunroof or the back window when you want to flick the two inch long finger of ash you've got, and it ends up in your lap.

So, here's the thing.

I recon the wiring to the switches runs through the central tunnel. Could I rig up a system that would move these switches to where the DIN sized cubby is below the ashtray? Re-route the wires, and build a bank of switches to put in there? Kind of like the ones on a Mk2 Golf?

That's the thought anyway....:confused:

I thought it would be easy on the electrics, but yes, the look is the important thing. Thankfully I've got a friend who can seemingly make anything with his vacuum moulding machine. Finding a plastic the same colour and texture as the tunnel cubby could be tricky though.

Well, once I've got window switches in easy reach of the wheel, and in full view I shall be the envy of you all (cue machivellian laugh of great length)

And of course I knock them out and sell them to you, for a modest profit.:cheesy:

Well us southerners like such fripperies as electric windows... it gives us something to talk about when the football season's finished. :cheesy:
