    Posted: 05 Sep 2011 at 11:25pm
Hello there, 
I am currently working to modernise my contessa and am focusing on the electrics. My switch panel is old and not working properly so i need to replace it. I was just wondering if any other members had replaced there switch panel and if so which is best. 
Many thanks
Michael

there are quite a few 'posts' from earlier on. If you trawl through the posts i think you will find some useful input.

I`m also replacing the original panel with my own engraved design : http://i51.tinypic.com/2eklqhh.jpg
It`s made made from the same material and has the same dimensions to keep replacing difficulty degree to a minimum. It`s gonna cost arround 30 euro (only the engraved panel) so if you`re intrested you can send me an e- mail.

Ben,

Looks really smart.

What are the two things to bottom left and right?

Also where are you sourcing the switches from? I assume all the fuses are individually in-line?

Do the lights have LEDs in them?

Thanks. At the left there's an example for a volt/amp meter, and at the right there's a gas detector.
I only can supply the panel with engraved picture and names. The switches can be purchased in an electrostore.
The fuses are behind the panel. Its only a panel replacement.

Hi

I used the Bluesea panel. expensive but excellent. Amp meter for consumption, volt meter for battery state. I have fitted several now and no complaints
