Final tweaks: heated hand grips


Since I still had parts off of the old snowmobiles, I decided to remove the heater elements from the hand grips, and install those on the new control sticks.  They are just a solid heater element that slips inside the steel tubing, and then I filled the gaps with an epoxy, and wired it into the system with an additional switch.  Even on the coldest day of moving snow at -20F, the hand grips can get hot enough that they are too hot to hold onto even with gloves on.
