Courtesy Lights

My 49 Standard Eight had an intermittent issue with the under-dash courtesy lights. With the driver's door open I could get the lights to work by wiggling the wire coming out of the door. Suspecting a loose connection or bad door switch, I removed the switch (two screws) and discovered corrosion on the switch contacts. After cleaning the contacts and the blade connector on the wire with sandpaper and steel wool, along with the switch mounting flange and door frame to ensure a good positive ground connection, the problem is solved.

A web search for a replacement door switch netted no results. I would appreciate any feedback on potential sources for these switches.
