Panasonic AG-DVC7 Videocamera Power Switch Repair

I have two Panasonic AG-DVC7 professional Camcorders that I bought at a Hamfest.  I thought I would test them out again as they do not always power on.  Both cameras needed new on/off switches.  I also had to dissemble one camera to fix a loose connector to the tape transport.  This is what the guts look like.

 Inside the handle there is a removable assembly that contains the power switch.

I soldered a switch to the two end contacts on the switch.

Then reassemble the control board with the switch wires coming out like this.

Then drill a hole in the top of the handle next to the "photo Shoot" button for the new power switch.
