OEM style switch that FITS well into blank knockouts

I wanted to install a switch that looks seamless fit into one of the blank knockouts. Dash switches are same size across any toyota...atleast recent models. Just dont know which one will be ~$10 and still look better!
I called the local Toyota dealer for PN 00550-42966 and 00550-35976. Price range $15 to $22!!

If you have installed one...pls let me know where to buy them!

AFAIK, all OEM style Toyota switches are manufactured by Cole-Hersee. You can find them usually in marine/boat stores like West Marine. However, the price is still high, usually $13+ per switch. I found a place online where I ordered 4 for around $10/pc. They have a couple of different styles to choose from.

Looking at http://www.elecdirect.com/data/ProductPDFs/CHa7.pdf
the dimensions of a blank cover is (24.4 x 43.2mm) for one kind and (24.4 x 48.8mm) for use with 82159 series. The switches on my 4.3 are about 22.5 x 32.5. My measurements may be a little off, but the switches are certainly shorter than 40 mm in the long dimension.

[img]/forums/album_pic.php?pic_id=9013[/img]Maybe there was a different series of Cole-Hersee switches, or the 4.3 uses different switches than the 4.2.
