Waitaminute.. I clicked your car's link, and I see an old (though very mint-looking) truck! Is that your ride? Are you putting the PC in that?! AWESOME! Talk about retrofit!Originally Posted by Alessio
Controlling lights on that bugger will be a tad bit easier than if you were talking about, say, a 2001 Pontiac Firebird, but you will still need to do some searching for how to control relays using your PC. There are already some prefab controllers out there for relatively cheap, but wiring it all up is a bit of a challenge, and with that nice (though old) set of wheels you have there, you are efficiently outside my ability to offer tips on how to go about it.

Thanks That is the truck I just bough, a fully restored 1938 Chevrolet Master Delux
I also feel that it will be asyer to wire this car, since all I have to do is check which one of the only 10 cables it has is the one I want to put a relay on
