    This eBay seller has the surrounds but I can't see any switches
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292356883...Bk9SR96V27PvYA

    The handbrake warning light is a Series 1 Fiat 126 light but the exact same one is available from Fiat 124 Spiders but has (an easily removed) script on the front.

    Gerry used to suggest it in Transformer days but I can't remember ever seeing one. I suspect that it was the closest anyone could find back in the day when research into minor parts was limited to a day or two in a scrapyard! If anyone knows an alternative source I'd love to see it for comparison!

    Re: Dashboard switches / shrouds and brake warning light

    After hearing the "Volvo equivalent" story I purchased one off of eBay.
    It only cost a few bucks. Without dimensions it certainly looks the part.

    When I got it in my hands, the bezel didn't look quite right. So I kept looking until I found a Fiat Brake Warning Light.

    Unless the Volvo part I found was not the intended one, the "Volvo equivalent" is way too large.

    If you do find one of the Fiat Warning Lights with text or graphics on it, it easily polishes off.

    Re: Dashboard switches / shrouds and brake warning light

    I used this one, slightly larger than the original one i think.
    Removed the bulb with a 12v one.

    For Switches i used new ones from Lada, they are physical the same, but have different markings. Bought them at Ladapower.

    The one on the far left John.
    Ok for a replica, but will not have the correct terminals for an original. Symbol is correct, and will no doubt have fibre-optic option.

    Re: Dashboard switches / shrouds and brake warning light

    These switches can be dismantled and reassembled fairly easily if you need to swap out terminals to add circuits by gutting other switches. What nobody has mentioned yet is the connector blocks they clip into which are handed to ensure you don't put the wiring on upside down. If you're building your own loom make sure that there is enough slack in it to allow the switch connector block to be pulled out with the switch so it's easy to reconnect.

    Yes the first switch (head lights) and maybe the last switch (hazards). I'll pm you shortly. Thank you.
