RT Fairing question - What is this slot for?

Does anyone know what the slot next to the glove box is for?





If anyone could point me in the direction of good information on all the goodies available/featured in early RT fairings (mine is an 81) I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

There were optional lights that would fold out from the fairing. Fog on one side, driving on the other. Took the place of the air vents. Those slots were for the levers that would fold out the lights. I've got a pic around here somewhere, let me look.
BTW, those lights are made of unobtanium and if found now are very pricey.

Here's them closed
