I picked the job up again this afternoon, and decided to fit the switch into the dashboard.

Firstly I chose my position

Then I cut away the vinyl and foam very carefully, followed by drilling a series of holes to form the square hole

Whilst out collecting some last minute bits today, I picked up a can of top coat paint.

I sanded one of the primed mirrors down with 800 grit wet and dry, and gave it a couple of coats.

Looking good so far Gary. Are these mirrors a direct replacement for the Metro ones or do you need to do a bit of modifying?
