Question Switch panels?

Hey, just wondering what you guys have set up for your switches. I'm going to be installing some reverse lights, driving lights, and foglights sometime this year and want to set up the switches in a nice factory looking way. I've installed switches in other cars before, but I wanted to see what you guys have done for these trucks. I was thinking maybe some rocker switches in the 4x4 switch location. Right now all I have there is a hanger for a CB radio mic. Here are my previous set ups. Well, thanks.


My 2000 Crown Vic. Rocker switch with light used for foglights, installed on non-factory center console. Left room on the right for more switches.





My 1994 Trans Am. Old school style pull out switch used for foglights, installed in front of shifter. I was going to install some toggle switches for manual fan control, and the fuel pump (IIRC) to the left of that switch.

I wasn't using that "cubby hole" thing anyway, so I did this ->

Took the pic before I bought the right color paint. The left side is now filled with a pair of air pressure gauges.

I made this real fast one day. Only took up half the cubby hole. It has the knob for my chip, and 2 toggle switches which I'll later use to hook up offroad lights and an air compressor. Since then I've cleaned up the edges so it sits in their flush

Thanks for the pictures and ideas guys. I'm still conflicted between making something for the useless cubby hole, or replacing the useless CB radio mic holder that goes in place of the 4x4 switch. Guess I'll have to buy the switches and see where they would fit best. I'll most likely be getting the same kind I put in the Crown Vic. Pics will be up once it's done. Thanks again.

Just saw this and while I'm not a huge fan of painting the interior, I do love the look of the rocker switches in the 4x4 switch position. 4 fit perfectly together there. I think I'll most likely be going that route.
