Default Mounting Honda S2000 Start Button

I just picked up one of these lighted Honda S2000 engine start buttons and I'm wondering what others have figured out on how to mount this in a panel? The snap clips seem to be designed for a material thickness of 3/4" or so, rather than the .060 thick panel we use. Anyone have information they can share on what direction they went?

I was thinking of having some delrin drilled and manually cutting the positioning ears/clip channels the assembly has around it.

Someone on the Vertical Power Forums used one of them... Perhaps a PM to him there would yield some info?

I posted over on VP as well, but the thread is old and was only mentioned by one person.

Just figured I'd check to see if anyone else has fabricated something, otherwise I'll start from scratch.

FYI, this is what it looks like inserted into the panel - just not secured yet.

Can you find some tubing (PVC, thick wall AL, etc) with the right diameter? If so, just cut to the right length & slide it on the back after inserting the switch in the panel.

It's a possibility. The back as for "ears" at 90 degree intervals that can be used to keep it from rotating, so if I can't find a pipe, I might have TAP plastics make up a plastic insert/bushing to slide it into.
