good switch location?

Having a hard time deciding whether I want to hide my switches to my leds or not.

For those of you that didnt hide them can I see pictures of your mounting locations?

Emblem Pros make some kick A$$ plates that will mount in the console or in one of the cup holders.

I hid some of mine and others I didn't. The hidden ones are installed in the drivers side kick panel. The visible one is mounted in the console trim and are easily reached from the drivers seat. I am not a fan of losing a cup holder for switches, so most of mine are concealed.

I don't have a HUD in my 2ss and don't plan on getting one, so I put 2 switches where the HUD controls would normally be

HAHA....Here is the list Of my switches if interested

1. Scanner light
2. Fogs
3. Grill
4. Footwell lighting
5. Nitrous Purge
6. Engine one
7. Engine two
8. Underbody
9. Trunk light for SS/RS custom made lid
10. Nitrous bottle opener one
11. Nitrous bottle opener two
12. Wheel Lights
13. Fender Lights
14. Cup holder lighting
15. Extra trunk light
16. Extra Engine
The rest I set up as Aux switches in case I have future needs or wants. The wiring is stub out and color coated around the car in order to adapt.
My goal was to have all lighting independent of each other to control when I wanted. Seeing my car come down the road you would never know all the lighting or other features unless turning on
