I pulled a high rise center console from a 2dr GL10 Coupe today, and so far I've got the switches mounted, but i still need to paint the panel and prep the console alittle.

I had to use my dremel to cut alittle away from the existing panel.

There it is with 3 out of 4 switches. I need 4 total switches, but so far I only have 3.

There's the complete center console. I'll probably leave it grey, but the switchboard will be gloss black. Still need to find a way to mount the switchboard since i removed the original switches.

Oh, that looks like such a good idea. :D I'll have to throw that on my list of things to do when I get that new Sube...

If'n I remember right, the old archives had a thread that mentioned switches with lights embedded within 'em, available at Radio Shack. Create a custom decal for the switches, and it might be pretty interesting.

Now all we gotta do is figure out what to hook 'em up to :D

I have 8 lights to wire, so thats what these switches are going to be used for. I will have one large MASTER switch that will go in that lonely hole in the bottom, and that will turn EVERY light on at the same time.

You're going to need two community alternators. :-)
