    I like that Ken... Did you make your own mounting plate or bracket? or is that Painless' recommended/provided location?

    Painless recommends mounting the fuse panel in that general location, either up above the kick panel or higher up on the firewall. I have Raingear wipers and that factored into the placement (I couldn't have gone too much higher as it would have interfered with the motor unit). The mounting plate came with the wiring kit; I modified it to 'stand off' about 3/4" from the firewall. I also used Nut-Serts (threaded inserts) on the firewall and the mounting plate to ease installation and removal.
    Cheers!

    This is an EZ wire harness, butchered up and added to for all the new circuits needed with an LS swap. It works great, and is in a place that will be covered up by a custom built center console, but easily accessible via panel. There's alot going on "under" this future center console.

    Paul,

    I love the accessibility aspect of that approach! Make your console come off or apart with quick turn fasteners?
