Has anyone seen a set of switch/handle recessed housings like this?


I like the red and blue color coding. The fire handle is Lifeline but I don't see these housings on their site. I have looked all over the web, even considered marine applications. I wonder if it is cup car housings painted?

Any input appreciated.

No...this is what the Cup's looks like...
The fire bottle handle looks bigger than Cup's and the electrical looks smaller than the Cup's...also 8 bolts vs. 6 bolts for the Cup.

Checked out Demon Tweeks but no luck there .
ThinkAuto do filler caps that look similar so have sent them an email to see if they have or know where they can be purchased ..
Tried lots of Google searches .. but no luck either ... bit of a mystery

definitely looks aftermarket to me.

my cup doesnt have the covers like on the 260 because mine is the older 240 and subsequently, the battery isolator is jammed stuck from water getting in there (Its a cable type).

I'm thinking my best bet is a Marine application.

Is there anyone that club races that cares to chime in? Doesn't the SCCA rules say "close to the windshield in case of rollover so it is still accessible"? What are you using? Please include pictures.

The three parts are the front and back plates and the black centre peice , does not include the buttons.
You may want to check Lotus USA .. as they may have ex stock .
Appears that UK have in stock ... but a bit more expensive than I thought they would be [ as always ]
