Installed garage door opener in overhead console...

I didn't like the garage door opener cliped to the visor. So, after some modification to the overhead console I was able to install the remote with some additional switches.

Let me know what you think.

Thx

Very nice.

Where did you get the board and switches for the opener?

The board is the actual remote (spare) that I took apart and the switches are from Radio Shock, the .pdf has a link to them...

Thx

I definitely like this because I leave my truck in my driveway as it can not fit inside the garage. And if by some chance someone breaks into it i hate having the opener inside there. This way they might be to dumb to figure it out hopefully if that ever happens
