Switch panel

Looking for a small ish switch panel with 4-6 switches for fog/driving lights and a few other things.
I swear I saw a picture here in a thread but couldn't find it....

Re: Switch panel

Where are you planning on mounting said switch panel?

Best panels are home-made

Re: Switch panel

This is all good stuff ---- I should mention what I am looking for is a panel of 4 basic light switches switches, probably NOT to mount overhead, just to replace the discrete SMB switches.

I also just found out that the bare spade terminals on the wires to my SMB fog switch rub against the metal knee bracket under the wheel probably why the fog lights aren't working.

It will be driving/fog/rear work/TPMS. (I don't have lockers or air or etc.)

I do want something that isn't easy to bump getting in or out. I know that mounting overhead is the solution to that but it seems like too much work!

Re: Switch panel

Tons of stuff on eBay, it's just hard to sort through there is so much. I'm headed to Autozone today to grab handfuls of switches both for new and redo- have the knee hit problem on the kickpanel and snapped a switch off.

Better than losing your kneecap!

Just found these new Hella 4100 series modular rocker switches:
http://www.hella-russia.ru/pdf/Brochure ... 221107.pdf
(I especially like the turtle switch, and also the 6 position mounting panel - that's pretty much what I was looking for)

They remind me of the Carling switches on my boat:
http://www.carlingtech.com/pdf/CarlingSW_V2_3.pdf

The Carling modular switches tend to fall apart if you bang them too much, so keen to see what the Hellas feel like.

(edit) Looks like Rallylights stocks the Hellas, not sure if he stocks the panel:

Re: Switch panel

Here's a place (Del City) I've done business with. Nice selection of rocker switches.
