Installed some switches

I needed a place where I could install some switches for some other upcoming projects. I saw a similar setup and decided to give it a go. I wanted something that looked as close to stock as possible but I didn't want to mess with center console empty switches so this was the next best thing. Everything fits snugly and they work flawlessly.

The switch bank can be found at seeral places online. Otrattw.com is one place. You can use the switches there as well. I got these switches from a place in the UK. They were the only place the readily carried the type of switch I wanted (green backlit with orange notification light). They also carry stickers that you see on the switches themselves. That site is mudstuff.co.uk. The shipping isn't bad at all and they are a few bucks cheaper than places in the US.

Re: Installed some switches

I think you can get something similar to these from Jeep vendors. My Uncle did something like this in his Wrangler for his heated seats and power windows that he installed.

Re: Installed some switches

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. When I get around to hooking them up to their individual functions I'll be sure to post up more pics of them in action.
