Default How did you mount your MS?

I have been installing the MS in a friends car (1992) and mounting it seems to be a trade off between wiring safety and foot space.

Please post pics of your MS install.

Mine is zip tied upside down to the steering column above the gas pedal. It's out of the way of my foot, so it works well there. Then again I have a 99 so my stock ecu is in a different location than an NA.

Velcro'd to the passenger transmission tunnel. I got some crazy Velcro from radio shack for a couple bucks, that's not just the standard hoop and hook design. Would probably work on the carpet too. Keeps the LEDs visible as an added bonus.

Once I got over the fact that the megasquirt has LEDs on the front I just burried it under the floor pan like brain. I've done the transmission tunnel like curly, under the glove box and in the glove box and also just floating around on the passenger floorboard (bad). I like it hidden where I dont have to worry about it.

This just made my day. I really didn't want to keep it under the kick panel. Any chance you could put up a picture?
