dont know if you would be able to squeeze the 3rd switch in there
i mounted mine in the blank spots , just had to cut a small piece off the corners for the switches to fit , ive got my light switches in the same spot on the other side of the steering wheel

Can you buy just the switches? Where do you buy them?

Thanks in advance!

hey josh i was also thinking what about eliminating the ash tray and sticking some switches in there

all he had to do is cut the upper left piece so you have a rectangle shaped cut out instead of a cut out with 6 sides

i wonder how i could go about that... hmmm

btw, penski again, how did you get them to stay in there once you modded the hole?

i dont , but the part where the switch slides into isnt completly rectangular
up in the left corner is a piece that just needs to be cut out , youll understand when you see it

the arb switches have rigged edges on the top of the switch that expand to hold the switch in then you squeeze them to pop the switch out

maybe even just modd the ashtray or cut of the braket so you could fit a small sheet of metal to it

there was a write up on cx of a guy that put a cb in there that could be some useful info
