Is that the Rangie headlight switch with a custom icon on there?

Rangie rear washer/wiper switch with custom Defender rear window defroster icon. I was able to completely remove the original icon displayed on the switch.

That's nice.

I have been meaning to add an icon to the switch covers for my rack lights.

Bruno... can you do fabrication in aluminum too?

Sure.

Thank you for the compliment Aaron and Rob. John is the one who suggested the Rangie switch - i thought it would be nice to have the correct icon displayed.

Bruno,

Not to nitpick, but shouldn't the icon be turned 90 degrees to the left?

John,

This is how the two Rangie rear washer/wiper switches will be installed in the Defender dash;



Also, note how my defrost icon differs from the factory icon depicted on the wash/wipe switch.

Sorry for the crappy picture.

That looks awesome.

The reason I asked if the icon should be turned 90 degrees was because I thought you would mount your switches like this:




I figured that if you were going to do the custom icon, you would want it facing you when you look down at the switch.

But now with the rear wiper switch right beside it, I guess it would look best if all three switches had their icons turned the wrong way. It would look more consistent that way.

Your switch panel is going to be kick ass.

Good job.
