Does any one have a source for a rocker switch that looks like the Avanti overhead console switch? SI has them for $50, but I'd like to get them for less.

Just wondering if anyone got back with you on this, perhaps vie email or IM?

If someone has given you a good source, please let me know.

Best regards,

You can find used ones for a bit less, but they may be yellowed and ready to fail. It's all relative, $50 for a new brand X switch would seem cheap.

Thanks for the update. Considering using newer rocker switches with LED's for switch position status. Also by using 3 way rockers, can convert the old factory two switch combinations into one.

I have access to several companies like Allied, Lafayette, Springfield. I can get switches which will work, but they are not made in pairs as the Avanti's are. I will order in some samples to see how close they look and update you.
