I saw a few topics posted where people installed nice backlit switches for their 3rd party LED lightbars/ and backup light installs.
I want to install a switch for an upper ROPS lightbar, and another switch for 2 smaller LED backup lights, which would be mounted to the light brushguard brackets I just bought.
PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS.
I took both panels off my 1025R today hoping to have easy access to the 'dummy' switch for the optional mowing deck lift.... and discovered there is other heavy duty plastic subframe elements in the way, preventing easy access to wiring and additional switch installation.
I removed some other bolts around the dash/gauge surround, but then discovered that the steering wheel and parking brake levers, etc are in the way of removing the dash panel.
Seems like a HUGE job to try and add a switch.
I don't want to just 'cut in' an additional switch next to the 'dummy' mowing deck lift switch cover, because I can't be sure there is sufficient room behind the panel to accommodate another switch, either to the side or below the dummy switch.
Not sure what to do from here.
I tossed around the idea of putting the lightbar switch and the backup light switch on the plastic panel beside the right side of the seat.... but then, that would leave the switch fairly exposed to the elements and didn't know if that was advisable.
Any suggestions and/or instructions on how to access the panel where the 'dummy' mowing deck switch cover is located?
I want to make this look 'factory'.... don't want a nasty cobble-job install.
