Lots of 356's out there with Hella 128 fog lights. In fact, more than ever were on there when first sold. Ebay is full of reproduction lights, reproduction switches, and modern relay's can be used.
But, not on Miss April!
Below are the correct, original, as installed by the factory 356 C fog light relay and switch. The yellow relay is very hard to find. Most owners don't really care because it is hidden on a 356C under the fuse cover. Same theory for the switch. There are some nice reproduction units out there, but the wiring connection is for bare wire connection, not a spade connection. ALL 356 C cars came with the wires with spade connections behind the dash- even for cars where the fog lights were not added.
Anyway, below are mine. Original knob has a crack in the yellow dot on the knob. Honestly, I kind of like it that way. Shows a little patina and that it is an original.
Oh yeah- I have a spare original switch to sell as well ;-)
