    If we knew more about the switch, we could answer your question. Is it a door operated plunger? a toggle? a rocker”, built in to the light? Can you post a picture?

    Also, I have a stupid question. Where is the “dome” light in your MGTD?

    There are no more MGTD kit car manufacturers or “dealers” left. However, you may try MG Magic in Miami, Florida. They have an inventory of MGTD FiberFab and MIGI parts and may have what you need.

    Answer to stupid question ..  …it has a hard fiberglass top..don’t know who made it, bought the car on the Internet in June, the switch is a push button , it is enclosed in a alumunun block about 1/4 by about 1 X 1 ” and attached to the rear of the door frame, almost have all electrical issues repaired as of today……….love the car, however I am 6’2 and find it a bit tight. Driving this car in the small town I live in is like driving a billbord…many thumbs up.

     

    Thank you very much for your reply..Ron…in Salmon< Idaho

    You didn’t break any Rule per say… just letting everyone know that reply by email will not post the reply in the forums and only sends an email to my webmaster email account thus making me the only one who gets  it.

    There are several aftermarket electrical vendors that have these plunger style switches. It looks like it a standard style screw-in switch that they mounted to the aluminum plate, then screwed the plate to the door jam.

    Painless Wiring, Ron Francis Wire Works, American Autowire are a few. I’ll bet yours is available at a local jobber that has a well stocked Motor-Mite or Help! inventory too.

    There are several places that I bought badge “brackets” for the badge bar. One was Moss Motors (http://www.mossmotors.com) and the other was Triple C (http://www.triple-c.com)

    Most kit car badge bars are from Marine applications. They are made from deck rail hardware. So, they are not the standard diameter of the “authentic” MGTD badge bars.

    Another thing is to use stainless steel hardware that is readily available from marine Suppliers.

     

    Good Luck.
