Sorry very very slow update , Most work is on electronics an software for the car, I plan to controll all with electronic modules and wireless or touch panel, no mechanicals switches or relays. so I design a can bus network to comunicate all modules and have less wires around car.
In the car I work very slow because I have a column injury and it's dificult to work long periods of time.

Here are some pics.

Chasis:

I adapt a BMW windshield motor, it only have 3 wires for connection (12v, ground and linbus):



Here you can watch a video of the motor.

Wow steering wheel is incredible. Where did you learn to the electronics knowledge to assemble something like that?

It's nothing more than arduino with NRF24L01 for wireless.
You literally can find thousands of tutorials for arduino on web.
I made the first steering wheel with arduino pro mini, nrf24l01 and lipo charger modules.
but I don't like it the wires, box and I need to charge occasionally. After some search I found great tutorials about low power arduino, and once all work fine with a coin cell (must work for about 2 years on CR2032) I decide to go furter and made my own board, so I found great tutorials for EAGLE to design schematics and boards.

And I made my own reflow oven with a chaeap toaster ($15) and arduino uno and reflow oven controller shield http://www.rocketscream.com/blog/pro...no-compatible/

Here some tutorial for arduino low power:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urLS...9fGT8BdjRZSZpA

Here how you can build and arduino minimal board (just I made with different chip package):

http://www.gammon.com.au/breadboard

Here how tu burn 1Mhz bootloader for very low power consumption:

Thank you! Awesome, Im going to have to look into integrating this into my build.

Sorry to hear about your back, updates are awesome.
I greatly support the canbus idea. Currently working on rewiring calculations to update the original full wiring loom in order to compare it with a canbus layout

Keep it going. It doesn't matter if you work slowly, take your time and get well...
