    Busy posting tonight, have many projects moving forward. I purchased a Becker Radio to replace a modern Panasonic radio. The last owner replace the original switch for the power antenna with a radio shack special.

    looking for a replacement original switch. Does anyone have a lead on a used one or NOS one for sale. None available on EBay tonight.

    I do have two of these with significantly different design: one from my 81 400i which does not feel smooth and one from an older car that seems to work well but missing the mickey mouse plastic bit. Both are far from perfect and will require new lubricant... I am currently "locked" at home so won't be in a position to ship these before a few weeks but I can ask my mechanic to take some pics (he has my car, switches are in the glovebox...).

    Would be interested in a trade for regular Lucas switch...

    The toggle switches are all right out of an old lotus if its the puck style knob. I buy the switches out of the UK new and inexpensive.

    I bought a 308 hazard switch from them for 11 GBP.

    I bought an antenna switch from them in the past for a 308 as well and I think it was about $80 Canadian.

    Having owned 3 Lotus in past years, I have a good supplier. I check web site and the Elan rocker switches are not like mine.

    Sorry have been traveling and did not see any responses in my email. I just check Europa Specialist, they do not seem to have the correct switch.

    Yes, I am looking for the Mickey mouse ear looking switch for a 365GT4 not rocker switch.

    Sorry, I just went on eBay and found one $650.00. Someone must have missed understood me. I am looking for just the switch not an opportunity to fund someone's retirement plan.

    Why so much for what I would think is a simple switch?

    Please keep me in mind if anyone has one or a lead on one to share with another non-trust fund baby Ferrari enthusiast.
