    Holy Carp.. That is one awesome mess of wires. I should take a picture of the console of my truck, its worse, but not by much. Phidgets rule, we need a Phidget project forum.

    Why don't you just hand make buttons in the shape of your's in Photoshop? Not take pics. It would be a cleaner and smoother look. Just make a block outline with rounded edges in the shape of your buttons, then play with the bevel and emboss layer effects. As well as shadows and all. Then make another version of each button with the "light glowing" and vwalla... smoothness. HOTT!!! Let me know how it goes.

    Here go here for some Photoshop help if you don't have the creative artsy know-how...

    Very good step-by-steps indeed. Hell, while you are at it.. why not make the buttons the shape of the originals, and then make em look like glass or translucent. Be creative, damn you ARE doing something not totally stock at all. Might as well go all out.

    If you only have to controle 8 relais or less, you don't need a microcontroller. I made a print for this, you just connect the elektronics board to your parallel pc port and you make a program in vb and you can control 8 relais on the board.

    I made it a year ago for home control. 8 relais, 8 transistors, 8 diodes, 8 reactances and done, i could post a simple shema and a pic of it :-)

    Thats the connector : D0 - D7 are the outputs



    That the right top scheme.


    Thats my print and it works, i also putted leds over ther relays so i can see what relais is working on the board.
    This board can switch 8 times 5 amp 230Volt so this is a lot of power to switch with it.
