Unless you're expecting people to just come up with something on their own and you're just providing the knob....then thats understandable.




He's got a point. If these knobs come with some particular way to light up or get the light from behind the HVAC, that would be definately cool, and I'd pay a lot extra for something like that. I'll decide when I see those pics

I also would be interested, depending on how they look with the existing lighting from the stock knobs.

Sounds interesting. I might take 2 sets depending on the pic.

However, Ninja got it right. First of all: what's being offered here - knobs w/o HVAV panel, right? So, you just pull the old knobs off, put the new ones - clear ones, and what we are getting? White light shining thru the clear knobs, and still green light shining thru the green marked HVAC panel? Doesn't sound right.

I guess if this friend of your father can do something more, such as panel, knobs and LEDs as a set - you will get tens and tens of orders here.

The idea under this is that I was providing clear knobs for the panel (3 of them). At the time, I have not figured out anything else to do with it, thats where you guys come in. On my panel, when all three nobs are pulled, a green ring of light shines through (y'know, when you turn the headlights on, the instrument panel lights up green?) Atleast, thats how it is on my 98.5 csvt. However, the color of the light that is behind the panel is an easily changeable thing. Letme (sorta) go back to the drawing board and see about making a little change. What about colored clear knobs (red, green, yellow, blue, ect) so that regaradless of the light on the panel, it would light up the color of the knob becuase of the "color filament effect" (y'know, like on a overhead projector?) I'm gonna put a hold on this for 1 day and see what you people think, and If you think it is a go, give me what color you think would be the best. I do not think he would want to make a bunch of diffrent colors, but I'm sure he will be open to a few (like, clear, blue, red, and green, something like this.)
Let me know.

Hey i am very interested in these custom knobs. Of course depending on pics. im interested mainly in clear but green or blue to match indiglos would work too. If people are concerned with not being about to see the knobs i dont think it will be a problem, there is enough curves in the knobs that you will still be able to see where it is pointing. THat is that those curved areas will be dark when the light from behind shines through. I feel clear would be the best idea and most suitable for everyones needs if only one color can be made.

I may be interested in a set of 3 for my Escape. I'll wait to see how these turn out first. I'm sure a bunch of folks at the Escape board I frequent would be interested in them as well if you decided to produce them for us(after an interest check of course). Does anyone have a pic of the backside of the Contour knob? The Escape has a bright white light that shines through a green plastic piece on the knob to give it an LED type effect, so I'm guessing colored knobs would be pretty cool.

doesnt the indiglo gauges light up blue, not from the color of the plastic, but because they have blue lights or LED's? if so, then clear knobs would be perfect.
And because I don't remember and it's daytime, is there actually an LED in the knob or does it get it's light from behind? And what about the headlight knob?
