Reply to "Headlight switch ?"

That switch is pretty universal.  If you take it out and wander over to your local NAPA store (or equivalent) I'm pretty sure they'll have one with a longer snout.  If you need a NAPA cognizant part number, I can probably find something in my "Standard" or "Echlin" catalogs, but they should be able to help you right at the counter.

If not, then you can do the reverse-dash grinding that Wolfie mentioned.  I use a Dremel with a 3/16" metal rasp and gently buzz out half the thickness and a circle wide enough to accept the switch body, (If necessary).  There is a Dremel accessory that screws onto the tool body that lets you set the depth of the cutting tool so you won't go through - that's handy to have, too, and prevents what happened to Alan.

I would try for the different switch, first.  After all, if Steele could find one and not have to cut the backside of the dash, you can too.
