Non-Lit Power Window/Door Lock Switches

Ok all. Without getting into details, simple poll here: Does it bug you that your Power window switches and lock/unlock button don't light up at night? I've found myself fiddling around down there many times.

EDIT: I started the Transplant from a Mazda6 panel and I'm transplanting the translucent switches to the Mazda3 panel. Proceed to Page 2, post 17 to see the excitement.

There you are gents and ladies - transplant complete
Thumbs up.

I hope you can translate for this low tech layman because this is something I am so interested in doing.
Excuse my simple-mindedness. You are transplanting the switches from M6 board to M3 board, the transplant will give the 3 all four auto up down functionality. Then next week you will be adding the lighting, so in the end all power all lighted? Thanks for taking the time to detail the work involved. Hope the parts needed will be easily available and not too expensive. Cheers.
I hope I will be able to get the parts and do it myself because I really need that. Good job.

Here's another pic of what the interior will look like once I get the t-tap connectors to finish the install

Woot woot!
I am sold, where do I pay?
Haha. If only I had that kind of time!!

Glad you like it. Cheers mate
Damn, I didn't know I was joking. Well how about a parts list and instruction booklet, would that be too much to ask? I could donate to a charity around here so two good deeds.
Johny, sent you a PM. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
It did not go through Sir.
