    Ok -- switches are both mounted in the ashtray. I'll post up some pics later this evening. Not sure what type of plastic the ashtray is made of, but it seems kind of brittle. As both holes punched through the plastic broke away, sort of like how wood does when you drill through it. I went slow and have fairly sharp bits, so at least I did not break it. Kind of reminds me of the old bake-lite stuff.

    IIRC the plastic for the ashtray is a rigid plastic that will shatter once pressure is applied. But it won't melt with a hot cigarette resting in it. Go figure.

    Here are pics of the switch setup. The long toggle runs the line lock and the rocker switch controls the cutout. I made sure the toggle has to be in the "UP" position to trigger the line lock so that it is less likely to be accidentally engaged.

    Looks good Jeff. I remember when I was wiring up my cutout, it didn't seem like there was enough room on the backside of the ashtray to mount. The mounting location I did with the cutout was the first time I was honestly disappointed with my work . That looks really clean, good job.

    Thanks! My build is winding down and it's getting to the point that I can not wait to drive her again.

    I think I remember your thread -- is that the one with the power distribution block? Like Cammed said earlier, going for the stealth look on this part of the project. I like having it so that none of the mods are apparent until you open the hood or look under the car.

    No, that was with all the gauges I added. I didn't want to splice into a bunch of power wires 5 times, and adding an extra fuse block with a relay seemed the safest and smartest way. I love that thing.

    You cant see the switch, I put it under the steering wheel, by my knees. I screwed up on the placement and had to redo it.

    for my line lock switch I didn't even mount it....I ran it under the center console and out right by the drivers seat. I can reach down with my right hand and turn the switch on and off and then tuck it under the console when I'm not at the track. I didn't want to drill and mount it anywhere and that seemed like the easiest way to do it.

    I used SLP unit 10 years, still works great,when applied my front tires have never moved

    LINE LOCK INFO

    IS hole behind pcm , but I drill hole beside steering colum also ( drill from inside out ) put a peace of rubber hose in hole ran wire inside hose, then use same type wire wrap as GM,tie wrap to the big rubber hose comming over master cyl
    I also mounted switch in ash tray
    I have used this unit for 10 years with NO problems ( well yes one problem :::SLICK tires )

    PS ::Connect brake line to master cyl and line lock ,the second line which goes to ABS block start it but leave it loose,remove cap from master cyl and let the lines grivity bleed watch the loose connection untill all air is out and run pure fluid ( may shake the line a little to help bleed ( REMEMBER BRAKE FLUID WILL REMOVE PAINT
    I placed plastic sheet over fender)if does not gravity bleed blow into master cyl and have some one watch for fluid at ABS block >>>THIS way you do not have to bleed the brakes from under car- I had no problem of any kind

    Sorry for the long post, hope it helps

    0rion - never thought about just leaving it loose. That's not a bad idea.

    SS - I use a MityVac for bleeding lines. Works like a charm every time and allows me to flush all the nasty old fluid out in the process without having a helper pumping on the brakes. Thanks for the info.

    Well... crap. I outsmarted myself on the line lock switch location. I thought I had it spaced up enough to clear everything, but when I went to re-install the console cover this evening I found that the switch hits on one of the shifter switches (not sure what it is called, has a rod that goes to the shifter, driver side).

    Taking another look at everything, I ended up moving the line lock switch to the right of the ashtray in that little nook. I actually like it better there and it is probably more protected from accidental engagement. I have some black soft plugs that I picked up at a show so I installed one in the first hole. Live and learn.

    Small snag. Glad to hear you got things worked out.

    Sounds like you did exactly what I did with my cutout switch. Didnt measure what was behind it before drilling the hole and had to drill twice. I was not happy with myself! Sounds like you got it taken care of though.

    Actually thought that to myself when I discovered the problem -- Ron will get a kick out of this!
