[DML] Dash Light Rheostat

A few years back, I found a possible replacement for
the dimmer control from TRW in Europe (they now own
all of the Lucas stuff).

I did no proceed with it, because I was able to repair
my dimmer (in 6068) by using procedures all ready
discussed here.

When the dimmer in 1860 broke, I decided it was not
worth messing with because I never use it anyway.  I
just used a jumper to tie the 3 wires together.

I put 6068's center console back together last night,
and the repaired dimmer control still works....  Now
that I said that, it will be sure to explode on me!

If anyone is interested, I can try and dig out my
notes on the replacement part.  Maybe someone can take
over where I left off, if there is any market for it.
