Nice job. It looks like a lot of work went into that.
FWIW I tried an ionizer for home back in the day. It triggered my asthma so needless to say was useless.
Just thought you might want to know in case you have any passengers....good it is switchable at least.

An ionizer air purifier is a device that disperses charged ions into the air. The concept is that these charged ions will then attach to pollutant particulates in the air that can be either collected into an opposing charged plate (or settle into nearby surfaces). Unfortunately, studies have shown that ionizers are not very effective in removing particles of dust, tobacco smoke, along with pollen or fungal spores – all potential triggers for asthma sufferers.

Worst yet, ionizers are often bad for you because they will generate ozone, a known lung irritant that causes chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath along with throat irritation. Despite being a product that produces harmful ozone, ionizers are still often positioned as a solution for allergy and asthma sufferers – if you or your loved ones suffer from asthma, you can help spread awareness and educate other sufferers on avoiding these harmful and unscrupulous products."

Default Thoughts?

What about purchasing this & a couple wire taps? Tap into the rear cigarette lighter and sneak each emitter into the rear center vent. Probably 1/2hr mod. Yes, itll always be on but if youre gonna go through all this to add an ionizer then Id think youd always want it on anyways. Im sure you could wire in the factory switch if you really wanted to.
