I am restoring a Plus Two s130 that came with no rocker switches.
What do I do to find these I have looked all over and nobody has them.
Does anybody have some niffty ideas stories or something for me?

thanks

Otherwise have you put a request in the wanted section of the site. there are a number of people breaking +2s at the moment and they may be able to provide you with a full second hand set. It worked for me and my wisbones!

Try Steve on 07753426976 (days) he has parts advertised in the for sale section of Lotuselan.net under the heading 'Bit & Bobs'. I've just bought some rear uprights for my +2s and he told me that he had to take them off the car. So there is every possiblity that he has the dash and rocker switches are still available.

I have a 1969 U.S. version +2. I have been unable to find identical rocker switches. I have found similar replacements. They require a slightly larger opening width (1/16" in.) and have a lower depth and would require removal of the "spacer" that is glued to the rear of the facia.

These would be ideal when using a new dash that can be made to fit the slightly different dimensions.

I require a list of the swithes and their specifications. i.e. DPDT, momemtary on or off etc. Can anyone supply that for me?
