Idk if you've ever tried adaptive cruise, especially the latest adaptive cruise with stop and go, but I am fairly "old school" too and until I used adaptive cruise w/ stop and go, I thought it was a waste of a feature. Yeah, it's just as easy to tap the brake pedal and hit resume when the coast is clear, but I honestly it's a feature I which my 10 year old car had... tell you what though, the first time I used stop and go I was crapping my pants, yelling with a certain scared agony with an itchy right foot hovering above the brake pedal because in all my driving experience, I wasn't sure if the vehicle was gonna stop in time.....I've since gotten used to it, as I work at a Ford dealership and often drive models with stop and go adaptive cruise...it's almost second nature now.Seems too busy of options for my taste and I like a more organic drive than a bunch of stuff doing it for me. Adaptive cruise,rain sensing wipers? I can adjust my driving and turn on the wipers when i see rain;I guess I like it old school and not really into all these driver's aids unless it's something like the emergency braking but a bunch of the other stuff seems to be for lazy,inattentive drivers.
Also, OP, I realized I didn't respond, but good luck. This project is something I would do if I had the space, time, money, and whatever else necessary, but I'm just not in that position, at least for now, however, my focus (hah, pun intended) is on other things when that spare time/money comes around. Kinda looking forward to your end result.
