That turned out really nice! Good work! Got any pics of the switch panel?
Here are a few pics of the switch box. The first set are of my original design....I used RCA plugs as my interface. I struggled with the concept for a while and then figured out how to wire it but alas, when I was all said and done, I had neglected to take into consideration the space between the back of my switch box and the cab wall so I had to either re-drill holes in my roof or re-design my wiring....I opted to re-design my wiring. If there are those that would be interested in using RCA plugs I can share a bit more about what I learned (kinda a "how to").
Donor CD changer I got my original RCA plugs from.
Switch box as originally designed.
(I acquired the three additional ports to the far left from another donor machine that I had laying around.)
Switch box re-designed....I left the RCA plug ends in place and routed my wiring through the holes.
(Far left port labeled "PWR" is for power coming into the box. The port labeled "Reverse Light" is carrying power out of the box to my reverse light that's switched at the back of the cab. And the port to the far right labeled "Wiper" is for power out to my new electric wiper motor.)
(I grounded the switches to the box and the box to the cab.)
And finally, the finished product.
(This photo was taken after getting the box installed but now yet all the wiring running to it tucked nice and neatly out of sight.)
(And finally a pic of the switch box in service.)
Here's what my switch box is connected to.
Front LED light.
Reverse LED light.
Switch/Handle for my reverse light; sure is nice to have something to hang onto when I'm looking over my shoulder to back up.
Fan with HI/Low speeds; for defrost and to cool things down should it get too hot in the cab.
And side marker lights and strobe (can't see strobe really well but it's in the center on top of the roof).
