Clear out: wiper stalk switches w/ speed-sensitive upgrade (also circuit boards)

Post by HwAoRrDk » Sun Apr 07, 2019 3:13 pm

Update 14/04: Found two more upgrade circuit boards I forgot I had. These are also on offer - see post below.

Update 17/04: One circuit board remaining.

***

ALL STALKS NOW SOLD

I have three wiper stalks with my speed-sensitive upgrade modification applied that have been sitting around for a few months, and I don't plan on making any more, so I want to clear these out. Selling them at a much-reduced price.

£30 each, including mainland UK postage.

Each will include additional hookup wire, wire splice connector, zip ties and printed installation instructions.

For details, see my project thread here.

I'm very surprised that these didn't all get snapped-up in the first hour.

I was tempted, as that's a bargain price for such an easy plug-n-play upgrade.
However, the pile of parts waiting for me to fit to my car is already out-of-hand and too many other jobs are taking priority.

For those reading the project thread, the technical challenges involved and the complexity of the solution may seem a little daunting, but the end result is beautifully simple and you don't need to understand any of the technical aspects to follow the instructions and fit.

Go on then. I need to swap my steering wheel at some point to try and enable cruise control, so may as well fit this while I'm at it. I'm in :)

Thanks, nightfire10.

Okay, one remains. However... it is tentatively sold, as someone expressed interest in one by PM not long after posting this thread on Sunday night. But, as of right now they have yet to get back to me or provide any payment. As a courtesy, I will give them until midnight to pay. If they haven't by then, then SeriousSam can have it. Sound fair?

Can't argue with that, first refusal and all. Hopefully it'll come my way, but I won't be offended if not :thumleft:

Well, no payment or response from that person last night (my PM hasn't even been read), so SeriousSam it's all yours. Will send a PM.

Was re-organising some stuff and found I had two more completed circuit boards that I'd forgotten about. If memory serves, I think one was intended for a guy in the US on the rx8club.com forums, who wanted to buy one but then just disappeared. :roll:

They would be ready to be put on a wiper stalk, bar the necessary prior step of calibration to that specific stalk.

So, these can go too, if anyone feels like sending me a wiper stalk to be modded. Not sure what that would be worth. Send me a PM with a sensible offer and I'll consider it. :thumright:

Not too keen to sell these as-is, because they are almost useless without calibration, and one would need certain kit and know-how to do that (although I have previously written an instruction guide on how to do it).
