    there is a flat spot below the radio above the shifter that is normally good to go.

    already got something below the radio dim, ash try is seeming more and more like a better idea better spot to flick on and off real fast, just need to take my switchs and do a dry fit and fab up something to work in it.

    its not that hard to make your own. Make a pattern from cardboard and transfer it to metal. Here is what I did on mine. The top squares are actually a flat touch panel to turn on/off 8 different switches. I don't have them all hooked up but there was space and if/when the time comes I have the option. The small circle on the bottom is the remote for my gauge on the a-pillar.
