Default '84 k5 rear window switch

I can't locate the dash switch that works the rear power window for my blazer. I would like to convert it to a manual crank but that'* not going to happen soon. 3 parts stores, a wrecking yard, and LMC don't have it.

well in my search I found 3 websites that have "tailgate release switches" for my blazer and they say it'* for the rear window but it looks like the power window switch for the door and mine doesn't look anything like that. I did totally forget that there are 2 chevy dealers in town so maybe they might have it or I could try one of the other type of switch and maybe it will at least fit the hole in the dash even if I have to wire it, or as a last resort I could use a generic switch and make some kind of plate to fit over the factory hole.

since I've also checked classicparts.com and a few others. I did find someone who used a generic switch that fit the factory bezel so I may order that and cut the factory connector off.

I've pretty much exhausted all sources. a guy on another board ran into the same problem and showed me a generic switch that I can make work and even fits in the factory bezel so I'll have to do that.
