Custom Warn Lights

I'm putting a custom dash with new gauges into my car and I'm looking for a custom warning light set-up Something like this...

But.... The one I'm looking at has 7 lights and I really only need 6. No big deal but the 7 light strip cost about $115. I'm good with that but I asked about changing 1 (that's ONE) icon and they have quoted and extra....wait for it..... $125 just to change out the icons strip and replace it with one icon changed!
Sorry but the guy at New Vintage is dreaming.
So I'm looking around and as I'm in New Zealand I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to go. Many web searches have turned up very little.
I don't want to go to single lights at I don't have a lot of spare room.
Any ideas?

Re: Custom Warn Lights

You can do some really cool things with an exacto knife, laser printer, some paper laminate and a sharpie or black paint to block out the rest….

My “Fasten seat belts” light now reads “LINE LOCK” when it’s engaged. Hard to see but it’s there and looks awesome.. stupid camera phone.. you should see it in the car

If you don’t push the limits how are you going to find the weak spots?

Re: Custom Warn Lights

I'm not that good with an exacto knife! Unfortunately the strip one from New Vintage is almost going to work. Pity they didn't do a 5 light version as the 7 light one is 5.5" long so takes up a fair bit of room.
I'll just have to keep looking or change my whole dash layout.

I just checked and this is what is written on their site about the gear range lamps: "If you don’t need a range, simply do not hook-up that wire." Simple isn't it?...
