For people with the "shorty" console.....where did you place you switches in/on it?

I am know this has been asked before....

I need to install 2 switches (one for efan control & one for blue lights). I want to install them in my shorty console and I want it to look some what factory. They are going to be flush mounted. So if you installed switches on/in your shorty console, where did you put them? Please post up some pictures of them!

If I were you, I'd put them inside the compartment on the right side, so you can see if they are on or off. That way no one sees them but you. If you want them on the outside, I'd place them on the lower left side towards the front so you can see them again.

I know this probably dosen't help but I have thought of possible using the superduty "up fitter"(or whatever they are called) switches. I just don't know where they could be installed. The superduties have a nice little area designated for them on the lower left of center dash.

a push button switch (over rockers) would be neat to mount flush right behind the coin holder. I've thought about mounting additional switches there for the "if/when" projects that don't already have a factory switch. Of course you could always cut into the radio bezel. I need to do the ABS disable, but need to hit up some JYs first for some bezels and switches. The fun switch is going to be figuring out how to wire in my flux capacitor toggle.

Brain fart....coin holder is up front of my center console. When I say behind the coin holder I'm talking the older center consoles where the spring loaded coin holder was located between the cup holders and the lid to enter into the console.
