Default push button start switch, cant find any!

I'm looking for a pair of those push-button start switches like the viper and s2000 has. I found one from moroso but its really bland black rubber button. Im mounting the key switches in a remote (hidden) location and just putting two big red push-button start switches on the dash. I can't seem to find any though, any help?

i spent hours trying to find the same thing without much luck. they were either the industrial type big red buttoms or plain looking black.

ended up going with momentary toggles and added safety covers instead

Fred at Trick Marine had some at one point.

How are you going to shut the motors off if the keys are hidden?
Remember, when you turn the key on, your hour meters are running up. If you kill the motors somehow, but forget to kill the key switch, you need to make sure you have things wired right.

You can use the lanyards to turn the engines off, but its not the method I would prefer.

even at that, it leaves the hour meters running. I guess Ill have to set up a ignition switch followed by a start switch. With the ignition switch in the off position, it wont run the hour meters, then when id turn it on i could hit the start buttons and fire up.. no?

Ill have so many switches to hit, itll be like firin up an f14!

Oh yeah, those "Start" buttons that are in most cars these days probably just activate a relay.

Ebay is your friend...

How about a remote start kit? Anybody got one of those for their boat? Use an accessory channel to fire up the blowers beforehand...
