Many painful and frustrating lessons learned, and now it's back to the drawing board...
It looks to me like the Super Switch has a lot of space at the side without terminals, have you tried it mounted the other way around? What happens then?
Tried darn near everything, and I've come to the conclusion that I have 3 options.
1 - I can modify the body. The switch is too wide and the offset design makes it smash into the edge. If a chunk of material from the side wall was removed then it would fit.
2 - Find a different control plate. If the switch was mounted at an angle I think it would fit. I know Rock Rabbit makes plates with angled switches...but they don't make them in black...
3 - Throw this harness in my parts drawer, and find something new. The Mega Switch variants below might be an option. However, after finally understanding the Super Switches flexibility the Mega Switch seems like a lesser option.
I'm open to suggestions.
