omg this is amazing
Yep, bit-tech is wonderful community
Photos coming soon
I'm very curious what the various switchgear will do, and the speedometer...

While people can argue about the aesthetics, (as with any other build). No-one can complain about the quality. Awesome work and mind numbing attention to detail.
Your sir are an artist.
Dials and knobs match beautifully.
when are you making the car to match this build?
absolutely amazing in both the videos and the building
Holy Moses, this just keeps getting better. The amount of work you have put in and the quality is amazing. Have you made all of the PCB's yourself too? They bring a whole new level of quality to the build. Huge respect to you!
The speedometer will show the CPU load. About other I'll write later
These are the original retro parts
Thanks, with what ?
I don't plan it in the near future
Simple PCBs I do myself. PCBs with microcontrollers and firmware are made by comrade ALS
Assembling the components of the front panel
Chrome-plated lower grille with dust filter
On its place
Original plastic knobs from the interior of the Soviet car GAZ M-20B "Pobeda" ("Victory")
Shortening the large knob
Grinding and leveling the base
Milling the space for the nut
The hole for the sleeve of a "radio knob"
Knobs for radio equipment
Sleeves with holes for resistors, retrieved from "radio knobs". And knobs from the car interior prepared for installation.
Glued with epoxy glue
Knob kit for the front panel
Variable resistor with cable
Resistors are connected with mounting boards
Inserted into the knobs
Two controllers on theirs places
Front panel switch plate
3 mm red LEDs in casing
Wires crimped by PLS connectors
LEDs with cables
Industrial class switches APEM 636H/2
Wires with PLS connectors for the upper row of contacts
Switching board for toggle switches, LEDs, LED lights in the bottom of the case and two controllers
PLS connectors on the board
Cutting off the cable clamps
and modifying them for planar installation
Cable clamps for the board are ready
PCB is covered with black acrylic paint for aesthetics
Two 18-pin conductor cables are connected to the switch board
The board and the lower row of switches' contacts are connected by screws
The switches are finally connected to the PCB
The switches are mounted on the plate. LEDs are connected to the PCB.
On its place
The front panel plate for the power button, the "ignition key" and 4 controllers
ELEWIND PM221F-11E button
ELEWIND PB223WY-11Y key
Installed on the plates
Switch boards for the controllers, the button and the key
Variable resistors are soldered
Variable resistors are installed, the button and the key are connected to the PCB
Оn its place.
The switch has 2 positions. In the first one the button works as a power button. In the second one the button does not work. The presence of the key is an important element of visual style and also a good protection from little children who want to press everything
The interior of the Soviet car GAZ M-20 "Pobeda"
Manual suction and manual gas knobs
The knob rotating the external antenna
GAZ M-20B "Pobeda", model 1955
Outstanding work. If I can offer constructive crit: I almost wrote 'no vandal switches' as a joke because I thought you wouldn't use them, then I scrolled down and there it was! I'm not sure it matches the rest aesthetically.
That... That.. Just... *channels inner-teenage-girl* I CAN'T EVEN!
But seriously though, this is an INSANELY well done mod! +1 for creativity and skills! Can't wait to see more
You are obviously a machinist who came here to show up the modders =D hahaha just kidding man this is amazing though, easily on of the best quality mods Ive ever seen with the use of true skills like, milling, turning, welding, circuit design, and this is my favorite style of modding, details details and more DETAILS! Keep it up man, this is perfection. Cant wait to see more!
OMG. This is just art, no other way to put it.. Its absolutely stunning.
Came here 'mildly interested' in an update, now absolutely hooked. How does the key look for that key switch, if I may ask this early in the reveal?
Bender's cousin spotted.
I meant the knobs and paint match great. The whole style works great.
