New track lighting for front reading lights.

I had two florescent light fixtures out in the airstream. I took the two from the front and replaced the bad units. I then used a track lighting kit I have had for a long time to replace the removed units. This kit was one that used two wire ropes that carried the current and a transformer to to bring the 120 down to 12v dc. I did have to use some wood medallions I got from Lowe's so that when installing the post I could isolate them. I also found a 1 1/8" plug to go into the hole left from the other fixture. On the curbside I still have the exposed hole and wires and switch exposed as I have not found a solution for it. Here is a pic. Any suggestions on a low profile 12v switch that would fit in the 1-1/8" hole? Behind the plastic is sheet metal so any prongs or connectors would need to be insulated. The gap between the plastic and the aluminum is only .5". Thoughts and comments welcome.
