Lighted TS Switch

Last week I was able to make a lighted ts switch from instructions here:
lighted TS chip switch - homemade - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com
The Switch costs about $30 in parts from Radio Shack plus a gauge. I used an old temp gauge from Wal Mart Clearance Isle for $7. It took about four hours to make with a lot of cussing but seems to work great. I think saving 80 bucks was worth the hassle.

Sure thing - I did a thread on it a while back.
Still doing some 'additional' lighting work that I'll be adding to that thread soon, (I hope.)
My DIY DRL mod.
