need to find 12V switched power

Can someone point me to a good place to pick up switched 12 volts on an '87 GT? Thanks!

If you don't get a better answer than mine, start by examining the fuse panel and I think you'll find a source labeled for you to tap into and I *think* it'll be switched.

What is the switched power for? If it's something in the engine compartment you can just put a ring term on the starter side of the starter solenoid mounted on the inner fender. If it's in the passanger compartment then you could look at the cig lighter, radio, rear defroster, cruise control in the column, power windows, etc, etc. Just get out a test light and start poking around or get a $12 Haynes manual with a wiring diagram in the back.
