Custom 3D print air vent support for throttle controller

Hi, when I got my car it had a throttle controller installed which was glued next to the boot switch. Not only I couldn`t see it properly but also I never liked the cable running and forcing between trims, therefore I decided to 3d print a new support and fit on my air vent.

All I had to do with the circuit board was change direction of wires and some little capacitor or whatever it was.

In total I designed 3 supports, being the last one almost spot on that I only had to print it with better detail.

I thought I would need to polish or paint but nah,
I`m extremelly happy about the outcome, and it looks much better in person.

Enjoy

Or...
Save time and effort and remove the useless thing.
There's a reason nobody runs them.

I`m still learning about everything that was fitted to this car before I bought it, if it works or not is far from me to tell, however I just wanted to do something that I felt like doing and I love the result.

Also it might also inspire others to do something similar to accommodate a gauge or whatever.

But thanks for the input.

PS
Made this little screen out of epoxy resin, looks better now
