    Led light bar on roof, spot lights on lower half of the bumper (used an air con switch and swapped the cover from the blank switch above the rear fog switch to the air con switch that I etched a spot light symbol, makes the job look a bit more factory) , apline head unit installed with the hands free kit, steering controls for it retrofitted, led puddle lamps fitted, permanently live aux socket fitted in drivers cubby box, this means a power feed can go to the satnav on the windscreen with out the wires going across the dash, and a remote controlled relay and timer relay built in so I can press a blipper and my light come on for 30 seconds. Plans to add a switch so the reverse light can be turned on without being in reverse so they act as rear work lamps.

    Relays, Switches etc for Freelander One Page 2
    Again expensive
    But you could get a rear switch and use a rear wiper /wash wipe (or which ever the right lower one is) and swap the fronts I've but legally it's meant to be lit up when on . or also I think the blanket front clips on/off the same as switch fronts

    I changed the whole steering wheel so wouldn't know how to do just the switches,it looks like you would need to cut a bit out the side of the wheel.
    And as for switches I originally had a rear wiper switch fitted but wanted the little light to tell me they were on so the ac switch works grand,

    It was the wiring mainly as I don't think the harness exists in the commercial?
