    When I get mine, I'm going to place it in the ash tray seeing how I don't smoke. I'll place it next to the line lock I plan on getting too.

    I placed mine below the steering wheel by my knees. Wiring is as simple as it can get really. DMH holds up well under all weather compared to QTP

    I think I like that spot better then my plan, stealthy and out of the way. I may change my plan. I'm more concern with my kids going what's that button do?

    Just make sure you measure BEHIND the cover under the wheel. I didn't and had to drill twice because the switch wouldn't fit. I missed my 1/2"! Don't make the same mistake I did.

    The only reason i am thinking of the ash try is because all my friends like to hit buttons in my car so the more hidden the button is the better haha.

    Hi-Po, what did you tap into for your power source?

    I believe there are drain plugs on both floor pans (driver and passenger). I know I saw the ones one the drivers side last night, so I am assuming there are 2 also on the passenger side.

    Not sure if this is a good idea, but if you have a M6 you might be able to run it up there. Not through the same hole that the stick goes through, but between the rubber boot. ( I see that getting taken out of context.)

    Hi-Po, what did you tap into for your power source?
    I am having a hard timing remembering exactly where/what wire I tapped into originally. Pink wire under the dash somewhere. I have added quite a few extra electronics so I went a step further and did this:

    How to install gauges - Write up

    I didn't like the idea of splicing into that many wires. Hope that helps some as I cant remember exactly where I tapped into originally. Preferably, you want a "key on" power source. Some say splicing into a constant power source will kill he battery from a slight motor draw. I had mine hooked up to a constant power source for a long time and experienced no problems.

    Now though, Everything has a dedicated fuse with a relay controlling everything.

    Looks good hi-po...

    I wonder if i can tap into my remote/accessory line that i have ran to my amp. That way the power will only be at the switch when i have the key on.

    I've had mine tapped into the power antenna for several years w/o issues, on my last TA and now on my SS
