as you can see.....these would be out the way, and hidden from your passengers, to still keep the car stock looking....the only way you would see these switches if you looked through the drivers door when open. I think Merlin did something similar....but with the second gear start switches, it fits perfectally and look almost stock, because they match the other grey accents that the car has

The second gear start switches are from a older gen GP....some of the cars had a button to start off in second gear, instead of traction control.....The switches will be used for the high speed Fan Override among a few other things

You never did fully explain why you wanted the switches while we were at the yard. Now I know

Needs a trim peice... maybe a cut vent that the switches replaced. The switch has 5 prongs what are all them for?

I agree some trim would help. Those vents do provide heat btw, just not much. And that seems like kina a reach to hit a switch. Neat idea, but I prefer where I put mine. I don't even have to look to hit 'em.

I agree with ya there, and that was exactly what i was gonna do. take a vent to make the trim.....and its weird....the connectors only have 2 wires, but the switches have 5....i have NFC what GM was thinking

thanks for the compliments....I would put switches where yours are but the heated seat buttons may end up there
