Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi,

Some time ago I read where a member had modified the dash switches by adding micro switches behind the panel. Can't find it anywhere so if anyone knows about this I would appreciate any assistance.

Regards,

Pete

I remember seeing that too but thought it too fiddly. Someone will come out with an after market kit eventually. In the mean time this might do the trick for you, see the third photo New ARB Compressor Install WK2
He used these http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12V-16mm-...280b881&_uhb=1

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi Bob.
Thanks mate but yes I was looking for the fiddly version. I want to use the existing switch panel if I can. I would mount some pushbutton switches behind the existing ones and either hard wire from them or use miniature relays for switching.
