Just some tips:
The switch has to be clearly labeled and if it's push/pull it's needs to be push for off.
I didn't trunk mount the battery in my 'very but in my '92 I did it through the plate and drew the little arrow and the word 'OFF' on the plate itself. If I was worried about someone messing with it I'd take the handle off. What I ended up doing was putting a small fuse holder across the terminals of the switch with a 10A fuse on it. This way if someone decided to play with the switch, nothing would happen. I came out a couple times to my car having been switched off. I think some kid turned it off, nothing happened so they tried switching it back which resulted in the car alarm going off. To silence the siren they turned it back off.
Since I added the fuse holder I haven't came out to my car having been switched off. The reason for the light fuse is to allow the system to still cut-out if something shorts or whatever.
Good luck with your trunk mount battery. Make sure that you ground it good and your car won't even notice that the battery is in the trunk. I used 2 gauge wire for the hot and the ground. I grounded it at the trunk and I ran a cable all the way up to the block where the body to block ground strap hooks up. I had zero cranking issues with my car.
