    I'm looking at a couple of these switches for a few upcoming mods

    Does anybody have a source or an idea for some stickers/icons/stencils to add to this sticker? I'm thinking about a heated seat icon and some sort of icon for bed lights.

    If no ideas, i might just stop by a sign shop and see if they can cut some little vinyl stickers

    Made a crappy drawing of my idea and had a friend who does graphics make these for a 12 pack of Molson. I'm sure there are local shops that could do something similar for a few bucks.

    I bought three of these switches, I didn't have a problem making them fit.

    The hole where the switch blank sits has a bit of a taper on the backside and this prevents the switch from locking into place. I just grabbed a metal file and abolished the lip and the new switch fit like a charm.

    I'll try to take some pictures tomorrow.

    I went outside and braved the cold.....here are the pics. I rigged the switch up to run my LED footwell lights.

    As shown in the 2nd pic, you just need to file a bit of that inside lip down to get the switch to fit. Hope this helps.....
