The link Pete has posted shows the same switch I have. I got them as a package from Acedux Hotrods but I think Bluewire motorsport also sells them.

I have this from an HK  and think that the large single ones with a bezel may cover the hole but I don't have any.

I guess if you are going the old look... Not sure what you are after.
I like the idea of the handle switches... Very descrete.

So I can't find any rubberbands tough enough for switches .....

Anyway quick update for today, installed engine and box to put weight on wheels and line up the rack properly. Mounts welded on now just have to drill the holes for the bolts.

So continuing with wiring and noticed this- the VT body control module cover is twice the size of the VS version but inside the board is the same size (although completely different). So to save room I put the VT board inside the VS plastic box. This then mounts up under dash and matches the key head to the security code in the computer

Also noticed the power window motor channel is curved for VT and was worried about the channel kink if I tried to straighten it. But no kinks so should work for doors. Realised the back door ones would be better for the front as it is straight up and down and scored another pair very cheap

Nes, Dont forget to either put the original sticker back onto the new casing or write the numbers from the old sticker onto the new case. This is so that if you have problems down the track and need to replace the BCM then you have the correct one. They are different depending what vehicle it is from and what options were on that particular vehicle. Also these are not being made anymore as Australian Arrow were the suppliers and no longer support Holdens. Also when programming new remotes to these vehicles either by a locksmith or Holden, you will need a security number. This can be extracted from the key head by a locksmith providing it is in working condition. Otherwise it can be extracted from the BCM providing we know what model vehicle it came from and also providing it is working. Best you start to write this info down for future reference. Any questions let me know.

Nes, a panel beater mate of mine said the best way to straighten the runner out was to put it between two bits of steel angle and clamp it in a vice. This will flatten it out without damage.

All over it like a dirty rash mate, Infact I have from both VT commodores a full set of matching BCM's, computers and a pair of keys witht he correct barrels.
So far I am running EVERYTHING from the donor SS so I know it matches and "should" work.
I have also "chipped" the computer to run stage 4 performance and should be almost 200kw with just that. Once I get it running I'll show the other tuning program I have been using to do things like remove airbag warnings etc (not the one earlier in the post). That'll be a while off yet though.. Roll Eyes


Thanks for the tip fcwrangler... Problem I have now is the window channel is too close to the door skin and not enough room for the motor to sit in. More brain stuff required, or a beer and a wild thought.

Did some wiring today and what a pain in the arse it is. I lengthened the wires to run the switches over in the glovebox

Prob not the best shot but only place I could fit the fuse panel is behind the wiper arm. I clears it pretty well. Not seen here but I mounted the BCM (computer in in small VS bcm plastic box) just to the right.

Don't know how well you can see but there is a white plastic piece that mounts to the brake pedal that activates brake lights, the second one releases cruise control and is twice as long. Slightly cut under dash to fit it. It'll be covered when I install the gauge frame that goes around the steer column.

Been there done that one.  Grin Grin

Agree wholeheartedly with JB.

Keep at it because you eventually do run out of wires to join

Cheers
