Open either the driver or passenger side door and take off the end panel. There is a hole there with insulation that you can poke through with a coat hanger to get wire under the hood.

I just ordered these from polycase.com. While it won't fit the conture rocker switches I was initially going to use, I believe this will work quite nicely. I plan on making/getting some L or V shape strips of metal to secure the case to the section above the mirror. With one of these I figure I can get between 6-9 switches up there.

Nice BigDaddyh,
Its so amazing that ideas are shared on the internet, I had this idea after shopping at Advanced Auto and was going to mount it in the same place and everything, then I got on here to check out other ideas. I like the daystar up on top of the mirror too.

Then I have 6 switches up top, using an sPOD (which is probably one of the single best mods I've seen in 18+ years of modifying vehicles).

That's a great spot if you don't have power windows ........

This is a great place for switches but these switches are tight fitting in here. I even had to cut the end of the tabs because it was too deep and hitting the circuit board. I found this switch at Autozone.










WOW... You sold me... Thats awsome...
