Hidden switch

Anyone else thought of doing this? I took a regular momentary push button and installed it in place of the cigarette lighter. I am using it for a windshield washer reservoir thats mounted in the trunk, to mist the rear tires for burn outs. I never used the adapter for anything, and figured it would be a nice hidden touch. The 12v power is already supplied, and just had to run wires from there to the trunk. Not a hard job with a little time. You could easily install any kind of push button for an array of things, and keep it hidden.

I thought about doing that for the switch to control my cutouts but that requires two way switch and I couldn't find one that would fit.
