Good switch location?

What's a good dash location for knobs/switches? Just did the marker light and fog light switch mod but can't decide where to mount the switch; or other switches for that matter..

Wow that is a good looking setup JS! Who makes that?
I like the plain toggle switches and I have all mine on the left side of the wheel under the headlight switch.

Very cool jschuricht, what are all those switches for, kinda hard to read in the pic. I'm not gonna need that many anyway so I'm thinking on the left side of the steering wheel like southpaw's
