What goes on the back side of the button to support it. It appear the button is made to be installed in something thicker than .040 aluminum.
Any pics of it installed?
It appears to be illuminated. Anyone using this feature?
Any wiring diagrams or hints available?
Thanks!

I just used a hose clamp around it and snuged it up against the dash.

What Dave said, it works great.

...and use a relay! I was in the camp that thought I didn't need one. Then,1500 miles later, poof!

This is one of those questions that we argue about around here!

No relay here, over 5000 miles

Sorry, I had to do it! ;)

Rob, I can always count on you! I'm sorry I let some of you guys non-relay guys allow me to get lazy about not putting a relay in mine back before the final assembly!

I left enough dash cover to allow a snug fit. This way I can pull the switch out from the front if I need to replace it.

See this is why you DON'T need a relay so you can replace it easily ! LOL

I used a piece (1.5 inches) of radiator hose (of the correct size so that the starter button fit relatively snugly into it) and a hose clamp to hold it in place. I pushed the starter button as far into the dash hole as it would go, pushed the rad hose up against the back side of the dash, and secured it with the hose clamp. works great!.

Oh, and I use a relay too. The small size of the wires and contacts concerned me.
