From the kludger:
This is what you do when you cut your thumb, but have to write an exam in half an hour. Cut thumb, zip tie fix it, write exam, get it fixed in the hospital. In that order.
From the submitter:
I wanted controls on the wheel so I extended the IR led out to the right side of the wheel and slipped some erector set pieces under my steering wheel cover to mount the remote to.
Sooo he never explained exactly what he was controlling and the remote says "DVD/Receiver Control"...
