    Hi again to all.. I have decided to use the switches in pics for my set up .. latching switches for fans only .3 to 0.4 amp computer type fans.. The rockers are red for power switching and carbon fiber look for all lights and bits.. That's the plan ...

    The round ones replace the black ones with the red and green lights and the rockers are all up higher so no light in my face from LEDs...
    Cheers and thanks for the interest that you have had in this.. 73s ... 351....

    I have a fluffy dog ? Could change his name to ignore ? Its all coming along well have fitted the wiring for the switches and put big diodes in so no risk of power going any way it wants.. I think I've nutted out how to make it work so I'm giving it a go ! No risk to grant will use multi meter before that gos in .. should look neet with a bit of chrome on the new switches... no mates hear are into radios or elect gizzmos so its nice to have some interest in my crazy ideas and builds, suppose I'm just an old nerd ! But a happy one ... :-) ... cheers guys.... 351..

    Not a nerd, a very smart man!! Take your time and get it done right. Looking good and I'm sure it will work well when complete. Heard a bit of Aussie coming into my receive the other night. And yesterday as well. But it's so hard to get back to any of them as everyone wants to talk to someone down under.

    Well at least you make a plan and follow thru with it. The panel you have your radios mounted in look like a custom car radio display. Keep posting those pictures 351!
