That's thrilling. So what is the button push sequence ? there are 2 pushes - leds turn on - off - on - must be the separate power turnons ? and the noise, from the actuators ?

very cool ! Felt like I was watching that old Universal monster picture from the 30s/40s - House of Darlene ! ITS ALIVE !

Pay no attention to the noise, I didn't realize it untill I watched the video that I had the pedestal fan on, and it was only a few feet from the camera.
Here in the tropics, we run fans all year long and become pretty oblivious to the sound.

The top left button powers up the PC. The receiver's relay board makes a momentary contact while you press the button that connects to the mobo power switch front panel connector pins.

The lower left button toggles it's respective receiver board relay. Push once to turn on the Aux PSU for the fans and actuator power, push again to turn off.

If you hold it too long, it'll sometimes toggle back off, as it did in the video, requiring a second press. I'm not very coordinated left handed.

The top right button powers the actuators in the "UP" direction for as long as it's pressed, but once they fully extend, they turn off by the internal limit switches.

The lower right button powers the actuators in the "Down" direction for as long as it's pressed, though they also stop automatically when fully retracted.

Question Darlene,

I noted that as the window was going up the plastic looked rather flexed, is this going to be fixed when the metal from the original doors is on?

The metal from the original door is pretty flimsy once it's not a complete door any more. I can't imagine the little trim pieces at the ends being any help in reducing flex. They are purely cosmetic.

The flex should be reduced considerably though, when I add the stress plate where the actuator clevices attach to the window.

It won't, of course, be eliminated alltogether, but it should end up at a much more acceptable level.

Since the window normally stays in the down position where flex isn't an issue, some degree of flex as it raises, and in the up position is to be expected, just part of the properties of acrylic.

Ha! That Gulwing panel is awesome. I'd like to see it auto-raise with one touch, but it's your build so do what you like. Other than that, it's coming along very well. I bet Paris Hilton would love a ride in that thing. The you could drown her in your WC loop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you sure it's not that you'd like a ride in Paris Hilton . . . . . .


Anyway,

The one touch auto raise is easy enough to impliment, but I decided against it as the window is pretty big, and I think having to pay attention as it raises is a good idea to prevent it from hitting into something too close by that I may have forgotten to move far enough out of the way in advance.

Also, there will be times when I don't want it to go all the way up, just part way may be all that's needed.
