    GP4 Stopwatch Light

    Has anyone got any good suggestions what to use or where to source a suitable solution for the small light which sits above the stop watches on a GP4 dash board.

    I did see that one earlier, ideally I'd like one where you pull it to switch it on but we may have to improvise/compromise!

    There are Fiat rheostats with an off position I think Craig?

    Craig,
    Mine is homemade with a wiper switch I think as the on off switch
    The light is made from a stainless hydraulic bulkhead fitting that's been modified and a small knurled part to act as the shade

    Thanks, if I can't think of a solution for the pull on/off version then I will be heading down this route.

    I was working on a drawing for a machined option yesterday, it might be the easiest solution.
