Anyone used BEP Switch Panels

Im looking for a switch panel for my rib rather than a series of cheap toggle switches.
It will be for nav lights, etc

Ive seen this http://www.power-store.com/view-item...d=1016&id=172&

Are these any good?

Thanks

Its just a series of cheap toggle switches set in a panel for 33 quid, I'd rather make my own and buy the switches and labels for a lot less.

Must be for a Verado as there's even a switch for the supercharger bottom right

I just had matching rocker switches fitted on mine with the labels on the switch.

You can get Carling rocker switches (which are very nice) for around 4 each and they make a modular mounting panel system which will accommodate any number of switches you care to use for a few quid.
