I love the "flat" style of the older CVX switches and would like to keep the heritage true when replacing them - though it would be nice if there was perhaps a transparent bodied switch that would show various light colors (options when buying) or even just one where the tip was lit.

I almost want to say I have seen these before.... Would prefer to replace all of these switches with a lit type of similar shape as I will also be doing a VERY mild interior mood light in the boat as well - not to mention updated audio deck and speakers...

Thanks!

If you tire of the auto/boat sites, I'd recommend the large electronic supply houses like Digi-Key, Mouser, and Jameco.     A decade ago I'd recommend Fry's, but they are recently gone.
