    12v Lighter/Start Button

    I have removed lighter terminal as didn't ever use it and didn't like the look of it sitting in the console.

    I am going to fit a starter button but wanted to know which button will fit directly into place so I don't need to mess around modiying console or using fibreglass. Ideally want it sitting flush again to look like a standard fit component and not a mess!!

    If anyone can help let me know, or any other suggestions with any pics would also be good as options are still open.

    Cheers

    iv done this mod and i got the richbrook one with the green led, no cutting or drilling, it fits in perfect and the cover has about 1mm all round clearence from the button so looks better then factory, only thing i had to do was get a washer that went on the back of the button that gripped to the back of the unit before i tightened the bolt to stop it pulling thru, very easy but got a car electricion to wire it in cos was to hard for me to do

    here is a link to the one you need...
