IBMOP!

I'm just about ready to install my battery relocation kit, and need to figure out where I'm gonna install the safety cut-off switch. I really don't want to cut up my bumper, and since I'm going for a "sleeper" look, I don't really want it to be in a blatantly obvious place. Where can I put this thing that will be out of the way, but still stay track legal? Or is this possible at all?

Cut off switch. The license plate stand offs are stainless steel, and are from www.mcmaster.com.

I saw one guy (don't rememeber who) who had installed the switch square in the center of where the license plate is. Then he installed 1 1/2 or 2 inch standoffs, and bolted the license plate to that. From the rear you couldn't see the switch at all, and it was not obvious that something had changed.

When he wanted to go to the track, he would simply remove the license plate...

Just an idea...

Mine goes through the plate but it kinda blends with the numbers and if your not looking you won't see it. (leave the red sticker off)

These are great ideas, but I'm wondering how difficult it will be to implement them on an SN95 car. Since the license plate mounts to the decklid (which moves a great deal when you open the trunk), I'd have to figure out some way to route the cables with a lot of slack in them and route them along the hinges or something. Anyone have any ideas in this regard?

Ouch, didn't catch that one... SN95 huh...

I had a 96 vert, but I really don't think I ever looked at it in quite that way... Don't think I can help any there, you definately don't want that thing to be moving..

What about mounted in the bumper facing up? Dunno.. guest guessing at this point..

Mine is behind the plate. I use a fold down license plate bracket off an early 80s Caprice, spaced out about 1 1/2 ".

Yep, mine is behind the plate too. You could do it on your car, just when you route the wiring into the truck you'll have to run it sideways along the decklid, then down the side and then into the trunk. Just takes some extra wiring is all. Think of how the underhood light is setup.

I also don't want it to be in plain sight, since this is still a street car, and a kill switch would be a pretty obvious way for a criminal to bypass my alarm. I really like the idea of hiding it behind the license plate, but as buffhomer noted, it's going to take a bit more creativity on the SN95 decklid (and some extra cable).
