I Have tried several and wasn't really happy, so I put a double throw switch on the panel center under the front seat where I could reach it with my right hand. Didn't like that either. So I took the tiny double throw switch of the Texas T Parts version and installed in in the left hand arm rest upholstery where my left hand normally lays. I love it! Hope you can see it in this photo.

Well, I screwed that up pretty good. I'll try again. Here's the photo.

Keith, You might need to get the Magnafying glass out!. It's that tiny shiney thing sticking out the front of the upholstery just above the upper fake door trim. That's what makes it "period correct", you can't see it!

It's maybe a half inch long and right in the center of the photo.

Since you are using the Texas T Parts switch, are you running a 12V system?

Hi Fred,

That's a great looking job!

I looked at the vendor's catalogue, and see a switch mounted on a "box" of some sort. Did you bury the whole thing in the armrest, and cover it with material? Or did you somehow take the parts apart, and just use the switch?
Thanks, Dave

I just used the double throw switch. I'm sure the switch can be found with an online search.

Fred
