Default Late Eighties Red Toggle Switches

Anyone have a line on the lighted red toggle switches used on late eighties - early nineties Formulas??

Also, does anyone have dash panels from the same year range? I need the thin upper glove box side panel for a 311. I think all of the panels are the same for different size boats of those years except maybe the 357.

Mike, I need two but would take a few more if you have them. Also, per your post below, you newer style ones would be good.

Hey Guys,
Check when you replace those rockers. Most of the originals were a unit that integrated a circuit breaker. Plain rocker or plain lighted rockers don't protect the wiring or device. Ask me how I know! Might have a line on replacements at a reasonable price. Al J

I don't think the original switches have integrated circuit breakers, they don't look big enough. But, you may be right.
