    I am installing 2 mictuning switches. One for the winch and the other for the lights. Where on the dash is the best place and how did you cut out. I don't want to mess it up and end up with a hole in the dash :). Thx

    If you take off the front hood and look at the backside of the dash, you will see imprints for cutout areas for rocker switches.

    Cutting them is not hard. Getting them straight is a PITA.

    You can find a templet in some of the honda accessory instructions. Print and use that.

    Or. Order a switch panel if you your future holds more switches.

    Used the OEM cutout lines for horn and rear light, plus a voltmeter/usb and battery charger socket. Wiggling a box cutter gave cleaner cutouts than an oscillating tool. I could see the lines from the front in the glare of a light.

    Nope, photo misleading. Those are sloppy rough cuts from first trying an oscillating blade, switched to utility knife thereafter. You have a good eye. LOL
