Mod to Daystar switch panel

I saw these neat volt meters on EBAY and ordered a few thinking I might be able to use them for something. I had gotten this panel in trade and it had two bad switches. I replaced one at a higher cost than I paid for the meter. I decided to put one in this panel since I was always curious about the voltage when runnning the winch and the offroad lights. An added benefit is that it makes it really easy to grab the 4x4 lever in the dark. All I had to do was enlarge the hole the switch was in just a bit.

I wired it into the power outlet on the left side of the center stack since that one is only hot when the key isn't in the off position. So now whenever I turn the key on I can instantly see what my voltage is.

I see you have a manual, does the Daystar switch panel get in the way when shifting?

No not at all, it might be an issue if you tried to use toggle switches that might get in the way.
