    Thanks again Robbie, what I'll do is take full photos, dimensions of the switch and post them here. I'm positive there's probably some alternatives out there just in case I break/lose these and need to find another compatible set.

    You are the man!

    Cheers

    What are the costs for one knob? How will it work, clue the arrows on the knob?
    Thank you.

    These look amazing!! @500tr if you're able to, I would be glad to buy a few spares from you if you can make them. Also, happy to send you a donor switch if you would like to see the specs of the back.

    Cheers

    Hi Paul,

    I have a donor part from my own car (Very sticky by the way) which I‘ve send to a company in Germany.. They will reproduce them for me exactly like the original, but without the white arrows. I‘ve ordered a first series of 20 pieces.
    The question is now, which one of the two examples is better, whiteout arrows or with engraved arrows.

    I need LH and RH as well - I couldn't find them anywhere. I've never searched for parts at junk yards - is there a good reference on the best way to do that?

    @500tr - if it's an option I'd be down to buy two of the parts from you!

    If you plan to sell them, please do so only in the classified ad section. Transactions should not take place in the discussion forums. Thanks.

    Just to let you know, this is no business case for me. But I understand your point, thank you.

    We support and appreciate DIY projects that benefit the community and encourage the "how-to" in the discussion forums. But once a DIY project goes from "how-to" to "for sale", then we like to keep the actual sales transactions to the ad section so that other users don't have to wade through them.

    If you want the white arrows, get one of the sticky guys, Dave or Robbie, to add them for you. They might even be interested in taking over the whole project if too time consuming.
