Re perposed NiteRider lights and a new switch panel

I had converted an old set of my dual beam NiteRider halogen mountain lights to use a worklamps on my truck. I sourced some high output LED bulbs that had the same form factor as the stock halogen bulbs. The bulbs consume only 2 watts of power to output the equivalent of 20 watts. They worked well so I hit up ebay to buy several more sets - I paid as little as $1.95 for a set and as much as $20 to get the lamps. Most of the time they came with chargers and nicad batteries . I am going to re purpose the batteries for a different project. I installed 1 light set in each corner of the rack and another serving a an aux "reverse" light.

I was looking for Ideas to control these lights - it is a given I was going to use old school toggle switches. I found some that were sealed - wire lead switches. Very clean design. Then I saw the latest James Bond movie "Spectre". The Austin Martin DB-10 shown in the movie was impressive. (even though in actuality there is no DB -10) But the prototype Toggle Switch Panel installed on the dashboard that controlled, automatic weapons, flame throwers and ejection seat was the real treat. I felt obligated to adapt the design to fit Defenders. My design features a 1" wide annodized aluminum bar, with 4 sealed, wire lead toggle switches that can be used to control any electrical accessories you have added on your truck. It is easy to install and comes with all the hardware. It will require you to drill 1 hole. (1/8" in diameter) up under the dash pad (into an internal steel suport structure imbeded in the dash). I am selling it for $50.00 . I attached pics of the re purposed bicycle light and the switch panel.
