FOUND!! looking for an early Spyder sub panel to mount the wiper switch & lighter

I have acquired a Spyder inst. panel & glove box door, to convert my 62 Monza convert. but to finish the installation, I need the small panel that mounts under the inst. panel that holds the wiper & lighter.. Oh, and if any one has a radio bezel / plate for an early Spyder, I'm looking for that too.. Please PM me if you have this stuff. Thanks.

I found one at Calif. Corvairs, but all he has have a 3rd hole drilled in to the center area, between the cig. lighter hole & the wiper switch. He has several, & every one of them have that hole in it. Am I missing something, or is there a popular mod that a lot of people do to this part ?

If it’s a rectangle it’s for the power top switch on a vert. Not common. I plugged a round hole someone had drilled in one with JB weld backed by a piece of tin can once. Smoothed the face and painted and it held up well.

Nope, it's not a rectangle. And my top is manual. I still wonder what every one did with those round holes.

On the 62 vert with power top, I converted the cig lighter into the power top switch (rotate the lighter knob to make the top go up and down) and drilled a small hole in the middle for the electric fuel pump prime.

It is just a really convenient place to put an extra switch. GM thought so with the power top.
