Which ones exactly? There are fog light switches that act as on off switches.

I will post up a pic..but hoping something like a carling switch would drop right in..a blank one so I can label it what I want..although the print on the fog light switch probably wipes off with brakecleen..

The faces swap pretty easily, and the faces are actually made of white plastic sprayed grey. I think the clever person might make their own mask for custom button faces. Otherwise, make some space and apply a carling label or something.

I was kinda hoping to keep the recessed look to the buttons as well as the stock hazard switch.. I see the fog light one on mine is a momentary switch but the seat heater one is a on off.. Hard to find 6 or so switches without paying an arm and a leg and here locally..

The fog light switch is not a positive on/off but can still be used as such, or you could use the rear wipe switch body. I just emailed a buddy of mine...I'm pretty confident there's a way to laser etch logos into the blanked switch faces.

Considering the cost of a good Carling switch it shouldn't be a massive difference to do it the right way with switches that belong in the fascia.

I need shitloads of switches so I will probably be relocating the radio into the centre console tuffy box and I think about 10 carling switches will fit in that space, I need some momentary and I need to switch the seat heater switches as I installed 2 stage seat heaters and they came with a different sized switch..so I will use the existing ones for something in those positions..I think I can get all my switching needs into that one fascia if I can use the blanked spots..

I added your name with a Y to my auto correct dictionary. It made my phone reboot.

It looks awfully close. Wouldn't that be awesome if they were interchangeable.
