Where have people mounted starter switches in their EF/EL dash? I'm getting a bit sick of having mine flapping all over the place.

My brother threw his where the cig lighter used to be, on his EF mont.

do you have power windows? If not, the panel in front of the cupholders might be a alright place.

is tour car Auto? if so, you could drill and mount it to the gear selecter surround.

if you want it hidden, put it down low (around the fuse box)

There are not a lot of places to mount it on an EF, due to the shape of the dash (and most of the flat areas have something there already).

Yeah, that is the problem I am having. Also as the switch is such a big unit, there are a few of the flat surfices which can't be used as there is insufficent room behind them.

I'd have to relocate the power antenna and rear window wiper (it's a wagon) switches too then.
