It's the daystar panel with different switches and custom overlays... I did everything for about a $100....

The S-Pod is awesome.. but I did my lights and switches for the price of just the S-Pod.

The boot doesn't turn them on... but it will turn the right 2 off if your shift into 1st & 3rd. You can slide the boot down about an 1.5" and it clears fine

it is a generic size and daystar sells the switches that fit as well. Then he made custom overlays. The size switch is the basic part and can be had from many different sources..

Yes, got that part

If you know much about Caarling switches as I do those switches are powered by Green LEDs with a white lens. A very hard to find switch. Wanted to know because it took me 2 months to find the perfect switch for mine and they had to come from London, UK.

The green/amber LED switches are available in the USA, just finding them in a "sealed" version is difficult.

Guys,
I am working with Carling on getting these switches... it's looking like I would have to order a minimum of 200 switches at a time and the retail cost would be around $13-$15 each.

I am also working with DayStar on switch panels.

I think I could put a full kit together (1 DayStar switch panel, 4x switches, a set of custom overlays) for under $100

Would any one be interested in this?

Let me know and I will keep working on this.
Also I could set up as a vender on the board.

Thanks,
Jay

I would be interested in them at the less than 100 mark! I too have researched the Carlings and variable overlay kits but all are out of country and seem hard to get. A local (USA) supplier would be the bomb.


I would like labels for driving, heated driver heated passenger seats and winch in/out for my 4 choices.
