This is an upgraded replacement for the center face plate in any Defender, which replaces the standard configuration with (6) Carling Switch cutouts. The factory face plate is simply vinyl wrapped (very) thin metal, and does not offer a Carling Switch configuration. Many find the addition of Carling Switches to be helpful when adding exterior lights (fog, driving, or work lights), Air Locker switches (ARB or Ashcroft), Heated Seat Switches, and similar.
This dash center plate panel offered here is a great upgrade, and not only dresses up your Defender but is exceptionally more durable than the factory face plate. Milled from 1/4" thick solid aluminum and powdercoated in satin/semigloss black, they are guaranteed to withstand the test of time, elements, and whatever you can throw at your Land Rover.
*Optional Carling Hazard switch available for additional charge.
