I will try to find the pictures somewhere, they spent a good deal of time bouncing around too many servers.

Hmm, now if you can convert this engine start button to an injector kill button, I would be interested.

Leave it labled start and you still have the bling factor but instead end up with a more usefull button.

what I want is the wireless enable. IE an RFID dongle so once your "in" the car the RFID dongle in your pocket or around your neck would "enable" the car then you just push to start.

the key would bypass all this so if you let someone else drive you don't have to give them your dongle.

Go one step further and have the RFID unlock certain functions/settings, something like a valet key. Without the RFID the start/kill switches (and any other ecomodder gizmos) would not work, so only the ignition could be used. And maybe the max speed could be limited?

that would take a rocker switch. for the sake of things. push left for the kill switch and then push right for the starter.

Nah, I would just need it to kill the engine not start it, we were only going for looks anyway, its not like it would actually need to start since I wouldn't use that feature.

My 37 Ford had a push button starter. I used it to prelube the engine before turning the ignition on. Best for a car that sits for weeks at a time. It also had a steering column lock.

Factory built.

I feel like engine start buttons aren't really good for this, but how about a race-car style toggle switch for the injectors instead of the fuel pump? Even more bling!
