There's "companies"" that chrome plate your plastic Lego parts. I cannot imagine that they cannot chrome plate your plastic button caps just as easily.

Example?

im not as concerned about matching the switch covers. i want to find suitable dpdt push switches to appoximate the original part and wither make a board to replicate the original wiring or just use flying leads. cant seem to find a source that will fit into the boss enclosure.

any ideas? thanks in advance!

Two need to be DPDT, one can be SPDT (but little point to sourcing a second type of part when you can just use another DPDT instead). The first switch on the DC-2 just disengages the other three switches, so if you're building your own, you only need 3 switches and not 4.

My Blueshift project uses toggle switches though because you have to mount the board to the enclosure somehow. Those push-button switches require the board to be secured in some other manner.
