What are you custom guys using for Forward/Reverse switch.

I am not going to use the cars gearbox.

I dont really want to fit a industrial switch for direction.

I see Damian managed to hack a BMW gear selector which looks really cool.Has anyone else had a go at this?

I came across this site here in the Uk, which is the sort of thing i would fit. what I like about it is that you have to press the brake pedal to activate the direction.

Looks bespoke made which mean its could be expensive. I am waiting on a call back

Any Ideas??

This is Overkill for EVs. A simple 3 way switch should work to change the direction of the motor.

Why? Just the appearance?

All that does is move a mechanical linkage. Even if you use it, you still a reversing switch which would be operated by this device.
