OHC question.....

on the ones with the sunroof switch in it, how big is the switch?

the reason i am asking is because i am getting 3 contra rocker switches and that would be a slick spot to put them......i was thinking about cutting out the sunroof switch and cutting in spots for the contra switches....i know i would have to cut bigger than the sunroof switch because of that hump around it.....

the switch i am getting is 0.83" wide x 1.45" long.....

i got 3, 1 On/Off/On, 1 Momentary On/Off, and 1 On/Off....

this is what they are for:
On/Off/On: in 1 on position, it will force the efan on no matter what, in the other on position it will be on auto function just like normal, and the off position, will be just that, off
Momentary On/Off: will be to change the flash pattern on my LED's in my grill (volunteer firefighter)
On/Off: will be the A/C compressor on/off switch...that way i can have it off in the winter time when the heat is on defrost....

mine has a sunroof button, no idea what to use it for yet.
i was thinking about making it so the door dinger turns off, but i really don't need todo that because it turns off with the key forward. maybe the other way for my air horns, not sure yet.
