AWOL : Glass Buttons now found.....

..... and fitted into Dashboards.

After we apply new features to a project such as electronic switchable suspension or Sport mode button to control open or closed the exhaust bypass valves, we are often asked to update the older style plastic buttons to glass buttons at the same time. However, glass buttons were introduced when new center console was introduced and some buttons intrinsic to new console didn't appear on the glass button options list.

Until now.

After becoming frustrated it was not possible to have a completely glass button theme on the earlier cars, we made the buttons ourselves.

The previously unavailable in glass buttons were;
Hazard warning light
AirCon select
Air Re circulation
Heated front and rear screen

All are now available in glass, the quality, true to form Bamford Rose - meaning as if product was made by OEM maker. Fully back lit and with the correct LED light for 'on'

We now offer any button in glass style to match current car button spec, but further, some clients commented they preferred the older 'classic' button font style more than the newer 'modern' glass button font. We solved this problem too by offering option of all glass buttons in both new and old font styles.

New lower center console button rack (this V8 Vantage had electronic switchable suspension):


New middle section console button rack:


Newer Style Font with thick / slanted font:


Example of older style font which is upright / thinner:


Example that anything creative is possible:

A client asked for passenger ejection seat button and missiles button, we have made these, in fact, any icon provided we will incorporate into a glass button.
For traction control, instead of the car graphic with tire marks we had the idea to replace car with either V8 or V12 graphic and tire lines, this looks cool. Whatever you design we make.

On application stating buttons required and font type we issue quotation.
Center console removal is fairly easy and button swap even simpler, making this ideal fit at home upgrade.

Generally how much do these go for?

Hi Mike,

Brilliant...The launch button in place of the sport button would be fun. Will it work and where can I get one?

Also wondering if one can swap button locations? On my LHD the sport button is hidden behind the shifter and l'd rather put the traction control button (which i rarely use) in that location.

I will post up the pics of the non standard range we have soon.

The price per std glass button is $95
The price of any button in glass no matter the icon is $295.00

Shipping and import duty is on top

For a precise quote for each owner / car, please PM VIN# and list of exactly the button spec / each and every button you require.

Buttons varied greatly across cars and even a VIN# search is no guarantee that post build the specification didn't change, which is why i ask full list of buttons required.

Thanks for the interest.

Mike.

once the wiring is unravelled a little, it is possible to swap the position as you desire, yes. A launch button will operate the sport function, yes.

yes, i can make a glass button with fuel release icon, although a plain (seat or glove box) button would do the job just as well, depends if you want the on cost of what is needed to create the special icon button

the glass buttons, and plastic for that matter, are all interchangeable between models. So a glass button (where available) from latest level car would plug / play in '05 car.

for any model / year its just a case of stating the buttons needed and i can work a total price depending in how many std and how many special to order.
