I am looking for a 3 way rocker switch for installing in my car.

I know of a few good online websites that sell switches, but I would rather see in person so I can make sure its going to be a perfect fit into the existing gap in my dash.

Where would I be likely to find such a store in Hamilton?

I would give Repco or Jaycar a try. There are a few electrical stores down Somerset St.

Ok cheers.

Another Q- is there any business in this country that can do printing on switches?

I would like to have it say Eco and Sport, similar to pic.

Put a small lcd screen above it, with dynamic text labels? Laughing

Well I spent the whole day looking for a switch that would fit perfectly into the gap so it wouldn't look ugly.

Repco, Jaycar, Auto Electricians, Nissan (who could get me a switch that said 'traction control' for $200!).

My search ended in America, here:

Its not the exact switch I was looking for, so I will have to alter my wiring, but it will do.

If you ever need a switch that fits the existing slots in many Nissan/Toyota vehicles, thats the one ;)
