Default Switch Mounting

This is a total question, but where are you guys mounting switches to control add ons? I poked around last night and couldn't find any suitable place.

I need to mount three in total; two toggles and one push button. One toggle and the push button need to be accessible while harnessed up.

If anyone has ideas on slick mounting arrangements, please post them up.

In your center console if you want to hide them.
If you dont have power windows, you can use that spot as well but they will be visible.

I secured a piece of flat, painted aluminum sheet just below my radio. It contains my oil temp gauge, my water injection controller, the pushbutton for my garage door opener, two toggle switches (fans and WI bypass) and a power outlet.

This is the best picture of it I can find at the moment. Ignore the photoshopped laptop hovering in space above the radio:

There's room for small rocker(s) in the steering column panel- opposite the ignition/key hole. What about OE switch blanking plates to the left of the steering wheel in the dash? that's where my wbo2 led is.
