Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9950099A1] A vehicle trim panel of electrically non-conductive material is mounted to the interior of a vehicle door assembly. An exterior surface of the panel includes a decorative trim and an interior surface includes a first electrical connector and a second electrical connector. An electrical circuit is integrally deposited and adhered to the interior surface of the trim panel for electrically connecting the first electrical connector to the second electrical connector. The electrical circuit includes a number of spaced apart circuit traces which feed an electrical current to a number of electrical components. The circuit traces are preferably provided by depositing an electrically conductive fluent material onto the interior surface of the trim panel to define the electrical circuit traces between the first and second electrical connectors. Preferably, the circuit traces are deposited by thermal spraying.
