Custom Switch Panel?????

Awhile ago I saw some custom switch panels that people had linked the images to on here. Particularly, I saw a set of black switches with a blue back light for the switch. I was wondering if someone can point me to the thread or to these different switch panels. I have searched the forums and am unable to find them.

Also, by long shot, I saw that someone had made a custom relay box for accessories and I was wondering if someone might also be able to point me towards that post, or thread also.

I know I am picking a needle out of a hay stack here, but I am hoping that someone will know! Thank you guys, and gals.

I remember seeing that website, and it is sort of what I am looking for, but not quite exactly the same switches. As far as I can remember, Grewe02 had showed me the other ones that I am thinking of, and they had like a bright blue led light behind them, and had the textured "dots" on the switches. I wished I could show a picture of them. I do believe he had said that someone on here made the switch panels but I can't remember. And as far as the relay box goes, it had like 2 or 3 relays in it and the wiring looked VERY VERY professional, almost military like. maybe that helps ya'll. I appreciate all the help i can get here.

If you decide to order them, mine have been fixed, here's the fix:

no, the first reply was closer. It is a cluster of switches like the first set, but they do not have labels on the physical switches, and they are like rocker switches. instead of the ribs on the switch to provide gripping on the switch, so you finger doesn't slide off, these switches have raised dots. I do believe the blue led light shines through circle like transparent holes in the switch body. I hope this description helps. I know I seem like I am asking the impossible here, but I do thank you for the time spent helping me.

Those switches have raised "lines" above the picture on the switch, they also have another set at the bottom.

The only other switch I know of that comes close to what you're describing is a Contura III.

What you're looking for are Carling Tech Contura II rockers with the blue lens.

These?

Switches

I'll probably do the blue ones, and have one of the Red ACC switches. I may need your help with the task of wiring though, if you don't mind. Also, those LED's you bought from Advance Auto Parts, I couldn't find them. What are they called/ where were they in the store. I need to buy them this pay day

No problem with the wiring. I've got all the tools you'll need for that. Can do it in the parking lot / driveway if you want.

Switches look good, same one's I'll end up getting sooner or later. No idea what the LEDs are called.... I'm pretty sure I got them from Pep Boys. Some sort of accent light. I'm sure it'll be in the ricer section.








Geeps, How's the console design coming? I'm pretty sure you said you were having some surgery. Everything go ok? PM me or email me some time.
