Default Updating my helm - Help finding white rocker switches?

I'm updating the dash on my older Wellcraft this winter and want to swap out all of the original black-colored switches to white. I'm having a tough time finding white replacements for the blower, nav light, etc. switches. They are a Euro-style lighted rocker switch made by McGill that just snaps into the panel. They look pretty standard, but I can't find anyone who makes an all-white replacement. I'd like to keep the light function that indicates when they're "on" as well.

Anybody have any suggestions? I'm open to other styles, too. Thanks in advance. SM

I just had a revelation! I may be able to print on the switches with a custom printer we have at work. I am going to borrow a switch from a friend and experiment this week. If I can, I can print captions on all the blank switches.

Quint, email me a pic of the switches if you have one and I'll post it for you. rsgriffin at cox.net.

What are you doing updating anyway. Get to shopping for that new 38'r.

Griff - resale, baby! Ha, actually, that is part of it. If I decide to keep the boat, though, decided this would be a good winter project. If it helps it sell in the spring, then great. Sent you the pic, thanks for posting.

Rookie - I'd like to keep the look of what I've got, but may have to use those Gaffrig's. I wouldn't be opposed to a toggle style, either.

Thanks, guys.
