DIY Windscreen Defroster

Sun Jan 24, 2021 3:17 pm

Hello,

I made a windscreen defogger using infrared heating films. The heater turns on in ready mode and off when the car is off. It looks like a dash mat, except that it is very light weight, only about 4 mm thick and not attached to the dashboard anywhere - hence it does not interfere with the passenger airbag.

I would add pictures here, but could not figure out how it works...

Me neither - I've been here 8+ years and have yet to upload a single image

Do the images get posted publicly on Imgur's website? If so, people usually add a little text to explain the photo.

Tiborx8, bradleydavidgood777's nicely customized instructions are just one of the ways to post images on this forum. You might peruse this thread:
http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1626
In my case, I have my own website so I just created an externally accessible folder which allows me to place my images into it.

Back on topic, Tiborx8, I hope you can figure it out as we'd like to see the photo(s) of your DIY windscreen defroster.

Hi,

thank you for all the helping comments. Unfortunatelly I did not find so far a page where I can store the pictures for free. Personally I think this stupid photo upload feature mark the limit of possibilities this forum has to develop and to share information.

If you are interested, I posted pictures on Facebook in the Mitsubishi Imiev electric Vehicle Owners group.

In the past few months, I designed a low energy consumption floor heating to the front and rear legroom, a low energy windscreen defogger, a few days ago finished the heated steering wheel project - not to mention the fully heated (seat+backrest) driver and passenger seats. I would happily share with you in the forum all of this with pictures, I believe many of us could benefit from it. It is a shame this forum was built such a way.

Tiborx8, thank you for keeping trying to post. To me, the images are not visible as all I see are icons. When I tried simply entering the URL of an image it wouldn't take, even after I entered it from my Google account.

Anyone have any success seeing Tiborx8's images without resorting to Facebook?
