honestly i would just drill it. thats what i did. it looks nice and clean. where would you put a box you build? it seems unnecessary for such a little switch. i have my switch controlling my neons too. i mounted it on the kicker panel on the drivers side, because theres the ground screw right there which makes it easy.

well i went to "the shack" (as its apparently now called) and they had like a toolbox setup for wires and switches and the sorts so i open up the drawer with the switches and saw this one and i was like "THATS THE ONE!!!!" so i'm liking the switch idea
