I installed a daystar panel that fits in front of the shifter (automatic) where the little cargo net panel normally resides.

I had 2 switches wired up and was able to get the panel pushed back in. I now have 2 more switches to install but when i do, there is simply not a lot of room behind the panel and all the wires are pushing the panel out.

I'm using spade connectors but was wondering if i should simply solder the wire connections on the top of the buttons so the wire connectors dont shoot straight out.

Anyone have any tips on wiring switches into this panel?

I don't have a technical answer but I can tell you I have 5 switches there on the Daystar panel. We took the wires to a fuse relay box thing that lives behind the glove compartment where there is more room.

yeah, the bulk of the wires are the 12v accessory feeds (2 per switch) and grounds (2 per switch). I am using a Cat5 network cable that i stripped the ends with to run the switched line to a box i have in the engine compartment. In that box are all the relay's and fuses I need.
