    Help Aux power (USB) in H3T rear wiper blank?

    So I was thinking about doing a pair of 5V USB aux ports in my H3T's blank spot where the H3 rear wiper control would be near the AUX plugs on lower dash.

    I cant seem to find much info or mods for that spot online, and have yet to pull dash apart and see what I have to work with.

    I'm thinking of using RAP power and a module kinda like this one. I'm still a bit unsure about size, that link may or may not fit, but you get the idea.

    Just wondering if anyone has done something like this or used that spot before? I mean why reinvent the wheel if there is a post I have overlooked :)

    Hi Matt, I used that spot for my auxiliary lighting push button. It is very sturdy.

    Thanks for the reply Mutaint, what size button fit in there? Did you have to do any modifying or is there a specific size that works well? I would love to get parts sorted out and ordered before I pull the dash apart :)

    I used the existing plastic dummy plate and a step drill each time.

    I used one of these. I really like the feel of the switch and there are many options for the LED back lighting of the graphic you choose. 12v stainless switch push button latching 19mm. Some may call them eagle eye switches.

    Something like this may fit also. You will have to remove it the center dash, remove the dummy plate and do some measuring.

    Thanks, that helps! I'll do some measuring and post pics once I have something put together.
