Hella Switch

Picked up this truck a few weeks back and making some interior changes. Below is the switch for the Hellas. Would like something more "stock" looking - any ideas?

Much thanks.

Expedition Exchange has this. It's a dome light switch but also can be used for Hellas. $33.

Or

MudStuff.co.uk has some OEM style switches. They're E-Switch's R5 Series, and can be found here and there on this side of the pond. And much cheaper than EE's offering. If you use the "configurator" on the E-Switch site (which generates a part no.) be advised that if you want something special you probably won't be able to find it for sale singly.

I'm making some additions right now and also wanted a stock-ish look for the switches. In that panel of three square switch openings I will have a switch for the compressor, a double switch for Hellas and (in the future) spotting lamps, and an interior winch control switch. I found the double switch on eBay.

You'll have to replace the mounting plate as the hole the Oem switch needs is smaller.

Thanks for the links - and yep, think I might not have an option if the hole is too big.

Have another look at that MudStuff page again. There are some switch plates there that you might be able to use, either as is or modified.
