toggle panel behind and between seats 3.0 '01 roadster

I had to remove the parking brake boot. The toggle switch panel between the seats is missing the block out plate or toggle next to the power top toggle, so I've got the power top toggle and a hole. There are two female multi pin connectors inside the console/cover, disconnected. What have I got here, a missing switch or just missing option?

There could've been a hardtop fitted at some time in the past, so the rear window defrost switch was likeley removed. Are the hdtp mounting brakets still in the car? I'd guess not__they bolt on over the soft top mounts, immediately behind each door.

Blanks are available, if you want to look up the part number here: http://www.penskeparts.com/fiche.aspx Enter your VIN (last seven characters__2 letters/5 digits) and search until your heart's content.

Let me know if you ever get to the Scottsdale auctions in January. I live right down the road and go to Gooding, BJ and Russo Steele every year.

Sounds like fun, but I'd probably spend about 30 or 40 million dollars (>$30,000,000.00)...

... I mean, I would if I had it
