Default Battery Cutoff Switch Location

Where did you guys mount your cutoff switch in the trunk? I have the push/pull type from summit and I'm not sure the best place to mount it. Any pictures would be appreciated.

I mounted it on the passenger frame rail. My handle goes through the body and the unused portion of the reverse light.

Mine is right under the passenger tail light. The switch is mounted on the frame rail.

mine is located on the passenger frame rail as well, which is the most common area on f-bodies...I will try to get pics up later.

Mine is low in the spare well. It comes out through the middle of the far right side of my plate.

I welded the tab for mine off the bar of the cage/at the frame plate, comes out right next to where the WS-6 symbol is on the bumper cover. Worked out well.

Yes, I shimmed the switch itself so its on a slight angle as well. You push the handle, it easily goes down and kills the car. I tried to upload cell pics of the outside but facebook denied. One of these days I'll get real pics
