I still need the Headlight switch w/descent lettering (I've located a good Hazard already).

The rubber part of my headlight switch is torn and kind of bent downward, so I can not just replace the lens part.

Here's a question though... if nothing else, would my original hazard knob just transfer over to where my headlight knob is... then I could add a VW headlight lens to it (since it's rubber shell is still good) ?

My car is not close or I'd check, of course. Thanks.

Yes, they are easy to restore. Polish the lens then fill in the lettering with a detail paint brush and off white plastic paint.

Cool. I didn't realize they actually had recessed lettering/markings.
Thanks - carry on.
