Mine came with my HotGlow Neon kit and fits in those blanking plates nicely.

I would also agree to check out Radio Shack, but you can also try any auto parts store and see if they have anythig.

Believe it or not the best switch for the dash can be found at Lowe's. I found a local electronics store that carries them as well. If you can't find it at Lowe's let me know and I'll get one for you. Here's how they look:



They are a direct fit, no modding needed.

you can find simple rocker switches at most electronic shops. I have this local hole in the wall place by me where I got these. They even light up red when on :D You can cram alot of switches into those spaces if you can find the right size. I had to use this space b/c the ones on my center console are already taken with an alarm, fog lights, and my bass knob. One of those switches controls my halos, one is a dummy for my inside LEDs (when i get them) and the last one worked my neons, but I replaced those with the remote SoundQuest LED ones and those came in a whole separate box :D Radio shack will definatley have something

Mine has a "track off" button there, was that not available on your year?

you could also take out the dimmer switch i don't use it i could have 6 buttons over there that would be even cool 3 on each hole

yeah mine has that, It's just hanging behind those switches in the dash itself. If I really wanted to turn it off (haven't found a reason to yet) then I can reach it through the hole for the fuses down below :)

Cool, I have been looking for another spot to place some switches. I put this one in to replace the lame @ss one the dealer put in for the under dash lights



I don't think the track system is doing a whole lot for me here in So Cal. We don't get much snow at the beach. Thanks for the idea!

BTW, I happen to be in Pep Boys today and saw a new switch. It's like the fighter jet ones with the safety cover but the cover on this one is carbon fiber. Doesn't fit exactly with my interior but it looks great!

that would be cool if you could put like 10 switches on the roof right by the window like a airplane.

It's a line from the movie Airplane...just to clarify. I don't sniff glue...whipped cream cans work so much better. :eek:
