Question Battery Cut Off Switch

I am wanting to install a battery cut-off switch in my D90. What do you think would be the best place to mount it? ECR project D90's and D110's have them mounted in the driver side storage locker, however I am thrilled about drilling holes in the panels (see attached pic) Any suggestions?

Cheers...

I mounted mine on the opposite side of the battery box near the rear lower corner. I like it because it is completely hidden and doesn't have any chance of being kicked by the driver.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

We put them there (see photo) because it is the stock NAS 110 location and that is what the customers want to see.
On my personal 90 it is like the others have said, over by the handbrake, sorta behind your right foot. Still easy to reach, but a little more out of the way.

Yes, the parts you see in the image are all stock NAS 110 bits in the stock NAS 110 location (just installed in a 90 in that image).
The Rover switch is SERIOUSLY costly though. You can do a nice battery cut off in lots of cheaper ways. Hella makes one with a key, but it is plastic. You can also do a nice one that goes on the batt. terminal that has a knob that unscrews a little to disconnect. I have one of those on my buggy and it works great and was just a few bucks.

I've got one of the screw-type ones that mounts to the battery post. Like Fidel sez, it works well and is cheap.

Wow! The Cole Hersee 2000amp switches I have are only about $45. Of course you only need that rating if you're running a winch off off the battery. It's way overkill for a starter.

Yeah...I knew it was about that. What I quoted was just off the top of my head.

Battery Cut Off/Kill Switch

The more I love my defender the more I fear it stolen. Any ideas for cutoff switches or what not when it is parked outside. I drive it daily so I just was thinking something so it can't be hot wired easily.

In my opinion anything that is in the cab (and fairly easy to access) is not secure/a good deterrent.
