I apologize in advance for the rehash of this subject, but I've read as many threads as I can find about where and how to mount the fuse panel but this thing is real sore thumb. I just can't seem to settle on a good spot....yet. To the left of the steering column behind the dash is not too awful but it takes up alot of the room behind the dash which may screw my plan for putting the headlight switch next to the speedo. Has anybody shortened the "legs" on the fuse panel? I have the American Wire harness and the fuse panel mounting legs have a step about 1" from the end. Just wondering if anybody has shortened them up to make the panel a little less obtrusive without electrocuting themselves. ;) Does anybody that does have it mounted there have either the light switch or the ignition switch on the left side of the dash? Do they interfere at all? Thanks

Frank, I took an idea from Mike Everson. I made a swinging bracket that fits inside the pedal box. Here are some pictures. So far, it is working perfect.





Sorry about the dark pictures. I will try to update my build site tonight. Hope this helps

The fuses are easy to get to.

Thanks for the picures guys. How's this for an idea? Why doesn't one of our industrious members make and sell a bolt in fuse panel mount? They would fly off the shelf. Hey Earl, you listening?

Frank, as promised here are some better pics:





I asked a few vendors about this and they felt there was no
in it. By the way, it took me all of maybe an hour to make. Works great too.
