Rocker Switches

Well, I'm doing the 650 dash mod and I got my dash piece in and now its time to find some switches for it. I really like the Carling switches but the few places that I have looked at are out of stock, like OTRATTW. Does anyone know where I can find these switches?? or know of another kind that I might like just as well??

Those carling switches are whats in a western star for dash switches. If you have a dealer near you it might be worth while to try them. Or even try a truck wrecking yard if you have one of those near you.

I want to install the F650 Dash and I want to use those same switches so thats how im gonna try and find some.

You have any pictures of your F650 dash in? Does the factory cup holder and hook work with the F650 dash?

no pictures yet, I just got it in the mail and painted it. But yea the cup holder and hook/ashtray will all work with it. I'm sure that since you want to install the 650 dash piece that youve seen this, but maybe not. Heres a link to CanadianDiesel's dash before and after. F-650 Dash Mod, and more...

I bought a few of these to use..

Carling Electrical Toggle Rocker Switch DPDT Momentary - eBay (item 330501532623 end time Jun-25-11 16:03:54 PDT)

Not really on/off toggle switches, but I'm wiring up the power fold/power telescope functions of my '08 mirrors, so those are what I needed.
