Retro console switches

17 10 2010

Fitted some retro console switches last night, to replace the standard buttons for hazard and headlamp popup.


These were part of a group buy on MX5Nutz – Dave-M made up about 60 of these sets and was selling them for an entirely-reasonable £25 or so.  I modified mine by replacing the top toggle with one that has a red LED on the end.  I’ve connected this up so that it lights up when the hazards are turned on.

A very easy, plug and play mod.  I’m very happy with it, although suspect it may lead inevitably to a full on retro interior on the Roadster.

Next I just need to find a way to do the same to the electric window switches.

I really want to do this mod. I know you said they were made by a member from another club site, by any chance does he still have some for sale, or be willing to make some more. I will pay whatever he deems reasonable to make one for me.

Sorry, I made mine. They’re pretty straightforward though if you follow my guide…
