I have a box of Honeywell pushbutton inserts from various 
machines scrapped over the years.
I have a couple translucent red ones that are real deep, and 
look a lot like they would fit the switches on a 360.
They are .980" wide, .749 high and .693" deep.  (24.9 mm W, 
19 mm H and 17.6 mm deep)

They have a groove on the rear top and bottom that the clip 
of the switch grabs them by.  They are not ABS, as they are 
translucent.  I also have 2 each, green and white versions 
of these same items.  I don't know if these will fit your 
console switches, but if they will, you are welcome to them.

I also have a bunch of the two-piece buttons that are more 
typical of the Honeywell switches, they have a colored 
insert and a clear snap-on cover.  You can put a piece of 
film between these to create a legend.
