    I spotted a switch for sale a while ago which was an A3 switch but had the newer 8P chrome knob modded onto it.

    Can't find the add anymore so I've bought a 8P switch to use and mod.

    Can anyone give me any pointers on how this was originally done? I can't see any obvious way of doing it (yet)

    Strip it down and swap the knob over?

    Think that will be the way.
    Just wondering if alternative before I rip it to bits. Going to look at it one night this week.

    I think ASH from the 8P forum did a thread or a post about stripping the switches down.
    I'll take a look.

    Looking at the pics of the 8L and 8P light switches.
    It is a case of swapping the knob over.
    I don't know how this is done but it could look ok.
