Automotive Switches

Hey guys and gals.

I'm after a few switches for the inside of my car. I'm having some trouble finding some that actually look good. I have been to Autobarn, Dick Smith, Jaycar and I can find any good looking switches.

There going to be quite visible inside the car.

Has anyone come across anything (In Melb) that could help me out?

Thanks

Don't know what you want them for, but Repco sell a range of Narva switches that look pretty good. They have demister ones, driving light ones etc.

That'd make a nice switch to either

1) turn on a nitrus switch
2) activate linelockers
3) dissconect front amps for SPL comps

:)

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Im going to be using them for:

Ignition (im making up a new panel and will manually start my car via a series of switches........fuel, accesories, ignition etc), and some massive spotlights perhaps.

I like their rice value personally :)

yep basically. Just have the red cover on them which you need to flip up, then the switch can be operated.

Im not sure as yet if I can get them directly thru an airline, but I know i can get them from their actual supplier. apparenly they arent cheap, but you never get anything cheap when it comes to aircraft....

Revolution racegear do something very similiar im told....
