Make before break switch

Ok all you electrical guys out there we need a little help. We are adding a second instrument panel below in the saloon and we need a rotary switch to power one or the other panel. Sure we can use a small battery selector switch and go from bank one to bank two as the selector switch but would prefer a more elegant solution. What switches are available? It must be a make before break switch (we think) since the fuel supply is held open by an electric solenoid.

You could separate the Fuel Solenoid power supply, from the instrument supply, and eliminate the requirement for a make before break switch.
