Its amazing what you can do with fiberglass and paint
That spot in my consol actually houses the Pwr window switches. I guess Im lucky my car didnt come with that option.
I just got a broken switch pack from a local dealership. (helps when you work in the car industry). Gutted the internals and cut a hole in the top.
Placed the top half of my touchpad mouse in position and hot glued it there. Then I stretched some lycra material over the top and pulled it tight. This forms the finished shape. Paint some fibreglass resin over the material and let it go off.
Once it is hard, use some automotive body filler from the inside to give the surface some strength. Sand and paint.
Doing it this way, ensures that the part will fit straight back into the car like it was made to be there from the factory.
Oh yeah, any idea where I can get a 90 degree riser from??????????
I actually bought it for $ 20 au, which is like $10 US from a friend.
I just scrapped the two buttons at the bottom. No need for them because the pad lets you "left click" by tapping the surface and dragging your finger. Works realy well.
There are right angle adapters for agp, as well as flexible adapters (cable between the agp connector and the 2nd socket). dont know any sources off the top of my head, but people who sell rackmount equipment should carry them.
edit: and that looks REALLY nice, i only wish i had areas in my car like that.

I did the same with mine. I put new switches in the doors for the windows and cut up the window switch cover so the touchpad would fit. Mine came from a keyboard that had it built into the wrist rest. The Cirque one was too big for me to fit in the space. I used LEDS for switch buttons so the buttons light up at night.
