Anybody out there in Rx-7 land know of any parts or anybody making the ashtray a motorized panel, like the car stereo faces or flat screen car tvs? I have some ideas, but not sure of the parts or where to get started.

Thanks, Matt

I am not in RX7 land, but how about a linear actuator, those are readily available in many sizes/throws with all the drive electronics and adjustable limits prebuilt.

How about vandalising/adapting an old CD drive?

You could use a synth chip, and have little messages like "so your going to slowly kill yourself" or "smoking leads to herroin addiction" as it opens :)
