Big truck rocker switches work awsome!!!

Im sure Im not the first to do this but I thought I would share it anyway. I found a parted out Western Star Big truck and had a hay day picking through the factory rocker switches. Its cool because they are already labeled and look good.
I ended up snapping 7 switches together and placing them in the spot where the dash cup holders go. They fit awsome and clean with a bit of 3M sticky tape. I used the engine brake,hook up lights,beacon light,sleeper lights,trailer cancel lights,and a couple blank switches.
I will get a pic of them to post.
You can hook these switches up to your dimmer so they come on at night to see what is what. Then when you switch one it will light up a different section to show it is on.
Now I havnt figured out the wiring configuration yet to use these features but someday when I am bored I will dig in.

I have the matching accelerator pedal but havnt gorilla glued it on yet. Ya this simple mod added a few seconds shorter of stopping power. I will say one thing. Those damn points are sharp. Ive had a couple occasions of wearing crocs and poke myself.

blk99,
I am a gadget whore. I want yet a few more items in there. Like the terminator scan gauges I have on order and so on and so forth.

Lookin good. I need to get a setup like that in my truck, was thinking just some standard toggle switches or something but I like those, specially with the labels.
