    I just thought I'd show the remote in action:





    I am going to spray the controls black to match the steering wheel, when i do that i'll post some more pics of its construction.

    Do you mind explaining the apple remote disassembly? I can get the battery out, but that's about it.

    Hey,

    I ended taking a sharp blade down one of the sides of the remote, because i could work out how it came apart. It should then open up like a book.

    Or use your dremel.

    Be careful though.

    Here is how to disassemble your Apple Remote without damaging the casing:

    1. Remove the battery by pressing the white spring button the end with a pointed object.
    2. Remove the screw visible inside the battery compartment.
    3. Use a pair of tweezers to pull out the gray spring button inside the battery compartment.
    4. Remove the screw visible in the hole where the gray spring button used to be.
    5. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the battery compartment by pulling on the white spring button.
    6. Push out the rest of the guts with a screwdriver or something long and skinny like that.

    To reassemble just do these steps backwards.

    thanks mate.

    Just to let people know that the original battery is still going strong after 5 months with a lot of use.

    Definately the best mod I've made.
