Lighted switches with icons ?

I'm looking for switches that I can see at night. I need to identify them for AC inverter, air compressor, exhaust brake, driving lights, backup lights, etc.

What do you use and where did you get them ?

Thanks

I don't know if he still makes them, but something like this would probably work, Shane Linse switches

I am planning on using some toggles with a back lit switch panel mounted in the F650 dash piece.

Hears a quick render of what I am having made.

TH: looks nice.

Is the text on the switches (Engine Brake, Idle Speed, etc) engraved in or is it a decal ?

I guess you could call it engraved, its not a sticker, its part of the switch and flush to the surface.
When my running lights are on the text, and the symbol in the darker square above the text lights up green.

Re: Lighted switches with icons ?

So the text must be cut right through the plastic and then filled in with opaque white plastic. Hmmm...

The reason I ask is that I have some switches that I don't think icons are available for.

Does one have to buy the entire switch to get the right icon or can you just buy the actuator part, like the part you touch ?
