Wondering if these rocker switch covers will fit in my 2005 LSV...a lot of the printing on my switches has rubbed off.

There was a link to a guy on here that would make them say anything you want. Anybody remember who that one was?

Those do look like the right ones.

You might call Wake Makers im pretty sure they have switch covers as well. I know i talked to Spencer about it at some point over the summer.

And I misspelled "Contoura"...it's supposed to be Contura.

And here's a link to a place to buy (in addition to the first one I posted)

It doesn't look like they have marine things though, like bilge pump for example.

They (otrattw.com) will actually put anything on the contura V rocker cover you want, provided it does not have a copyright.
Here's a link to one I had made for my tower lights.

Right, an update on this....I've been emailing back and forth with them. Although my order hasn't been processed yet, I'm going to just replace the entire bank of switch covers so that they all look the same (2-3 have been rubbed off).

They etch the plain black covers (no lenses) only. $5.00 each so long as you use stock Carling icons, and you can put whatever text you want. They claim over 1000 different marine icons (in addition to quite a few others), so there is a lot more artwork than what they have shown on their web site. I wish there was a catalog somewhere, because then you would know what to pick from. There is a partial catalog here: http://www.carlingtech.com/sites/default/files/documents/Carling-RS-V%26L-Series-Markings.pdf

They can do custom art, but there's a $75.00 charge for that.

All in all, a great deal...I'm looking forward to having all new switch covers in my 2005.

OK, new switch covers on the way :) Ordered from otrattw.

Attached is the artwork that they sent...I just told them what I wanted and this is what they sent back.

Will take pics when they get here. The covers won't have the red lenses, but the white LED's will show through the white etching on the switch cover. I'll probably play with some blue fingernail polish on the existing LED's to see if turning the lights blue looks nice.

Got the new switches and popped them in...I like em ;)

Before and after pics below. otrattw was great...replacing all of the switch covers (plus one extra ACC switch) came to less than $40 including the shipping.

Also a very cool upgrade for sure! I believe I will be ordering some custom covers for 2 '13 SC boats very shortly!

The switches in my '08 don't use LEDs, just a regular tiny bulb. It would be a fairly easy swap to a colored led, I'd imagine.

Right, mine just use a tiny white bulb as well. I looked at it for a minute, figuring that it was easy to change the bulb out, but it wasn't obvious right away how to get the bulb out without taking the entire switch assembly out. That wasn't something that I wanted to do at this point, so I decided to just be content with the white ;)
