Default Show me your switches!

Morning,

Firstly - Happy Christmas everyone!

I recently got an ash-tray delete from Subtle - and lovely it is to - I'll soon be doing a write up with photos in my journal.

I got it to fit some USB charger sockets in the dashboard and remounting a matching 12v socket for the sat nav (rather than using a crude splitter).

Problem is, there is quite a bit of real estate left in the delete, which made me think what else I could put there. Now I'm not one for gauges, but did wonder what eles people had in there for the switches.

I'm thinking of installing a switch to control the front spots when I fit them, and I have a 5MT so no need for any other switches for the gear box - my question is - What else is there to switch on / off??

Here's what we did in my son's '03 X. The write up for this project can be viewed stating here.

This is what I have in my '07 FSXT. The write up for this project can be viewed starting here.

Looks good (have seen your stuff before!)

What labelling solution did you use to print the small labels?

I'd prefer something more professional, but I'm a DIYer. I used a brother P-touch label maker with 1/4" (6mm) tape, black with white lettering. This label tape holds up very well & it can easily be replaced if you decide to relabel.

Yeah - I've got access to one of them but I'm finding it difficult to find a white on black sticker available in the UK - found white on clear which might work.

Equally - I can't find anything that looks better / more professional - any ideas?

The best selection & prices I've found for P-touch cartriges, here in the States, is on Amazon.
