    not really many spots to mount a switch pannel. and i didnt want to drill holes in the floor or in the dash. so im building a swich pannel for the small roof storage compartment. has 9 switches with led indacators. the 3 switchs to the left will be 1 2 3 and im making it so it will work like a slide switch, or link 1 to 2 and use 3 alone or when turning on 3 it will turn on all 3. also has back lighting.

    wired:

    1, 2, 3, left alley, takedown, right alley, td-left, td-right, aux

    the led under the #1 switch is a dual color and will be lit red for power to switch pannel and is on all the time. then that same led will turn green when any of the 9 switches are turned on. all the switches have a led above them to also show what one is on. and all have led backlighting.

    im also at one point gona make it so i can change patterns without removing anywires. all i will need to do is remove the 4 screws holding the switch pannel in. and turn on a dip-switch or jumper not shure what im gona use yet and use a surface mount momentay push button switch to change the pattern.

    pictures so far:
