Here is a stupid question. What are the switches used for? I noticed they are not labellled. What would they be controlling?

David.. You might want to try reading the post. You'll find out these are not for sale, this is a how-to.

And that yellow buttons weren't an option in the first place.

If they WERE, I'd have some.. hehe.

There looks to be yellow switches in the ninth picture.


Oh and BTW can you fit six switches in there? Maybe a smaller spaceing.

Those switches aren't yellow... they are the amber ones. Flash makes em look funny.

TRUST me on this... When these were for sale in the BST forums, I was the first one to buy one, and I whined to Orange about not having the option for yellow or purple switches. Hehe.

Love the ashtray idea my friend. I came up with an idea on my own for the same kinda thing. I bought a ford OEM console armrest (i have an ebay contact that sells em) and got myself a really cool switchboard. I installed the armrest (in what would be the stock location on a standard focus, I have an SVT) and installed the switchboard inside the armrest console (you open the armrest and there's the switchboard). I used "F-18 style" switches with LED's to give it a James Bond/Knight Rider kinda look. So far I think I'm the only guy that's done it (at least no one has posted about it that I've seen so far). If you guys would like pics I'd be happy to get you some. Just thought I'd throw the idea out there since we're talkin switchpanel stuff :)
