Just wondering were people have put the switchs for the shift kits. Up until this morning mine was lying loose flapping around in that gap under the ashtray.

I've now mounted it next to the power/economy switch. I'll get a picture later. It hasn't ome out aswell as I hoped, but that because I couldn't find a better switch, Jaycar and Narva wern't much good, but it's not that bad either.

Anyone else got any pictures of were they've put there?

EDIT: my switch

I have mine stashed down under the fuse panel in the little recess where the footwell light is. Out of sight, out of the way, but easy to reach.

In the glovebox near the light. Totally invisible to all, even those sitting in the passeger seat with the glovebox open. To turn it on takes me about 3 seconds to reach across..... only use it at the drags anyhow.

I am thinking of using one of those old skool foot switches for high beam, easy to hit it when you need it!

Try a search and read the other threads bud on them. This ones specifically for ideas on were to put the switchs. That reminds me, I've been slack about putting up my picture.
