    Just to the right of the key on dash there is a flat area. Ya gotta remove he dash panel to mount them. Is not hard to do.
    Why don't ya just get a touch pad

    mount

    here's a link to an earlier thread. You would need to make a plate or box to put them in, then use something like one of these.

    if you have a manual trans, mounting the switches on the stick under the shift knob is a really good place. this way you never have to let go of the shifter or steering wheel.
    on my 89 i used a hose clamp through the modified bracket to hold it tight to the shifter.

    I made another switch plate since this pic was taken for more lights and such but still have this home made console and plow control set up. This control a modified fenner pump.

    You can see how I made the bracket in this vid.
