They are Marien grade switches I got off Ebay, can't remember which supplier.
they are for SatNav - Iphone - Spots and a spare I wired back to the battery for future use. I also have one in the left trunk for the on board Air line I installed.

Nice job, but more importantly, what do you use on your dash and stingray plastics to keep it looking so beautiful?

Re: Home made Zumo bracket

First of all great job, i have my zumo installed on the stock mount, but that bracket would work great to hold my stupid ezpass, i hit a bump yesterday and caught it in the air. I am hesitant though to drill holes in my plastics... i wont even use the sticky gopro mounts.

I understand about drilling holes in the plastic, but you can always use a rubber bung to cover them if you ever remove the bracket. I user rubber expansion nuts to hold my bracket. Similar to the BMR shelf instructions, I think it was a 7/16" hole you drill and the rubber expansion nuts just push in - very easy.
