Custom shifter with 2 buttons

I'm planning on having a custom shifter made for my insight that features 2 buttons for controlling mods.

Twistedshifterz can make all sorts of custom shifting knobs. They already have a single button knob and they said they can make me one with 2 or 3 buttons. They can probably make one with an IMA C&C/MIMA joystick.

Here is an example of one with just a single button.

I plan on getting IMA C&C but I heard it is bad to ride with your hand on the shifter so I only want to use the shifter for FAS and Max Regen. I also have a clutch mod for times when the battery gets low, or if I have to drive uphill (or fast) for a long time. I'd like to connect the clutch circuit through the max regen switch so that the calprod is interrupted when regen is applied. It looks like a DPST momentary switch would be ideal.

I have a few questions for the knowledgeable members of this forum:

What should the volt/amp rating be for the max regen switch (brake light circuit)?

Would this item work?

39-261 RED: Grayhill : Push Button Switch (N.O.-N.C.) Single Pole Double Throw Round Plunger 0.25 Amp 220 Volt AC 28 Volt Momentary Contact Pc Pins Through Hole : Electromechanical

Or is there a better switch that one could recommend?

Finally, How many forum members might be interested in the same product? We might be able to arrange for group buy.

There's Daox of who 3D-prints a 1, 2 or 3-button shifter knob:

Ya get what you pay for sometimes and it certainly applies here.

I bought one a couple years ago with my old Insight. The buttons would get stuck and the wiring to the buttons was janky at best.

For $30 I didn't expect much and if you're ok with modifying it to work properly then it's fine.

Perhaps his process has improved since I bought one 2-3 years ago.
