Things to "Switch"

Well since I soon will not have ABS, I plan to redo my switch plate...

Here is what it looks like now...




And since i dont ever change the program that my Chip is on that is two more switches that i dont need.

So that leaves...

A/C compressor on/off
Efan on/off

what else??

the space by ur passenger side air bag switch is where the ash tray goes. take ur floor console out, 3 screws hold it on, and u can pull out the ashtray hole, cut a hole in the top of it, and then its super easy to run wires, and looks alot cleaner..... just a thought.
