Heres a pic of the controller board and the feedback slide for the paddle shift system


Do you still have a clutch pedal in your paddle shift setup? Do you have to use the clutch pedal? (if there is one)


There shouldn't be a clutch, it's a standard automatic transmission (not automated manual). It looks like he was just able to hook it up so that he could use the paddles to switch between park, drive, neutral, and reverse.

No clutch, this is attached to the stock Fiero automatic transmission. It allows you to use the automatic like a manual trans, or let it run the gear shifts itself like an automatic.

Chase1,
Did you fabricate the shifter paddles? If so, that would makea n interesting presentation.

Thank you for sharing this with us, I was inspired by your build to start my own. Glad you are back on board.
Would you be willing to share details such as what relays and curciut board to use so that I could construct a shifter like this?

The relays are 20 and 30 amp relays I got at the auto salvage yard (blue ones are 30 amp). They are simple SPST relays. You can use whatever relay you like, as long as the ratings are sufficent. I like to use automotive relays because they will handle more abuse, are built better, and made to handle long energized periods.
Since I designed the circuit for this, I had to make the circuit board myself. I used the blue heat transfer sheet to print the circuit traces to the board for etching. After it was etched, I drilled it out with a Dremel and soldered everything on. I got the connectors at an electronics store. There is about $40 material in each board, when you add the price of the board, the transfer film, the etchant, the relays and the connectors.

Can you make a walk-around video of your Murci and even it being driven? I think we're all dying to see it in action, pictures can only do so much sometimes Confused. Thanks

The orange light is a lens that I have made to the size of the OEM lens. I dont know what LED's you are talking about, but here are no LED's in an OEM Murcielago headlight, and none in mine.

So the orange one is a light or a reflector?
what is the light in the top corner?

The orange light that is basically rectangular with rounded corners is the running light. The other light that is in the tube shaped recessed hole is the turn signal. Most people just mount a bulb in there, and wire it to the turn signal. On the OEM light bucket, there is a lens there as well, and the buld come in from behind it. The lens is shaped like the end of a test-tube, and has small concentric rings moulded in as diffusers. That lens is easy to make, you could even use a 3/4"diameter plastic test-tube, and cut it to lenght.
