Custom switches
I just wanted to post pics of these little switches I put in to the pop out blanks on the drivers side. These small rocker switches look better than anything they have at radioshack imho. All it takes is a little patience with a Dremel tool or something similar.
Right now these switches do nothing. Later I'm planing on connecting one to be able to turn off the DRL and auto-on feature. I will do this by running wire over to the switch from where people cut the wire for the single wire method of DRL disable. The other switch I may connect to blue footwell neons.

Here pictured with the kind of car we all wish we really had.

Here's the finished product. Looks stock and I still have another blank to play with.

Ok, where did you get that? My radioshack does not have that. I actually went today looking for switches and was unsuccessful. I am starting to get pissed.

Did you try autozone or discount? They have a pretty good selection of switches as well thumbsup

i had to cut a hole in my plastic thing so that the switch would fit. It worked pretty well. I got my switch from autozone.

You can order them from electrical supply companies. I took mine (with permission) from work.
