    anyone have a good web/mail-order source for automotive electrical parts?

    I'd like to modify the electrical connections on my plow. It'll require a really heavy duty momentary rocker switch (40 amp capacity, connector terminals for 10 guage wire), some kind of project box to put it in, (or panel mount...depends on whats available). 4 terminal plugs for the same heavy wire, which is a 4-wire 10 guage flat cable. (a standard 4 wire trailer plug set wouldn't be heavy enough).

    your typical retail parts stores don't carry anything quite like this.

    Try McMaster-Carr, State Supply or Grainger...all 3 are huge suppliers for industrial applications.

    Try U-Do-It-Electronics in Needham. Off 95.
    They have almost everything from one extreme to the other in electronics.
