    I don't have fog lights! lol
    I bought some a while ago, then my brother dropped one and the lens shattered, now I'm contemplating fitting some more lexan over them both to serve as new lenses. Then I could have TWO buttons!

    lol, just take the tray out completely, the panel just sits on the points where the tray sat. My ash tray is out of the car in that pic. If I was to mount it to the ash tray, it would be raised up a little more and not be as flush.
    On a side note, if your button is too big, I'm sure you could just cut it off and wire it to a smaller switch, right? Go to autozone, they have SOO many different switch styles.

    I actually had to take the console off, then use some gorilla glue to hold the boot on from the underside of the console.

    Well, I took the staple off the shift knob so I could get the console off. The shift knob boot clip thing is only on manuals
