Default Instrument switches 1989 baja 220 Sport

I am putting in new panels, guages and switches in my 1989 baja 220 Sport. I picked up a set (7) of Faria guages for under $200, thought that was pretty reasonable.

Now I need new rocker/toggle switches. I looked on ebay, local stores, etc and can't find what I want. I need about 5 on-off, 1 mom-off-mom, 1 mom-off, 1 on-off-on. Any good ideas?

Also any suggestion on what to make the actual panels out of? I was thinking brushed aluminum, diamond plate aluminum, or I could use a plastic and have it wrapped in mathcing upholstery...

I can't decide what I should do and pick it up from the upholstery shop tomorrow. I sure would like to have it out on the St Croix for Memorial weekend...

Thanks

Search ebay for "contura". That will bring up switches, switch bodies, and switch covers for Carling switches, both illuminated and non-illuminated. Tons of choices.

I used Jim at Top notch when I did mine. I also had a carbon fiber vinyl put on to the orginal dash panel and a sign shop labeled all of the switches for me. turned out nice
