Ever since I installed my tower lights over a year ago I have been trying to find a rocker cover to match the original Contura V style covers. I bought the original switch for the tower lights from our local Moomba dealer thinking the cover would match, of coarse when I received it in the mail it did not. I called them and they said that was all they could get so my hunt has been on ever since. I actually contacted Carling technology directly and they told me that there inventory didn't show any dealers carrying that style cover in stock for the double through switches.

So I finally found a company that does custom rocker switch cover. It doesn't match 100%, but it is a lot closer then the rectangular double through cover. I tried to get the Moomba Roo embossed on the cover but that is another story. So I went with a couple of kangaroos, forward facing for front lights, rear facing for rear lights. Finally my switch panel looks factory again.

most people won't even notice (even though you know). And if your like me it still bugs a little :)
Looks good!! Made a world of difference.

Love the roo. How do you know which way is forward and which way is rear facing? Looks kinda like left and right to me.

Viking the difference is slight and after looking for so long I feel it is a much better match than the rectangler rocker, which bothered me everytime I looked at it.

Kane it is all in the mind of the beholder "left or right"---"front or rear"---"up or down"
Left facing is foward lights.

If anyone is interested in a customer rocker being made for ballast bags, led lights, etc.... Jim @ http://otrattw.com/index.php can hook you up. Basically anything you can come with he can make and at a great price. Less then $10.00 each shipped.

Wow, that's amazing he can do them for that.

By the way I think you might be Chinese or at minimum left handed. :D

I wonder why there would be a kangaroo print in anyone's tooling for any type of a switch. That is quite a find.
