Master switch installed

I've just placed the general kill switch (aka contactor or maintenance switch) in the transmission tunnel, next to the hand brake:

Gigavac HBD41AA contactor in place. It almost looks like the space was meant for it. Great 90's design :)

The holes were not hard to do but I did have to buy a 68mm hole saw.

Here's the view from the underside:

Plenty of clearance and clear path for the thick EV wires

There's enough clearance, even considering the transfer case might move a bit. There's also clear space to wire the thick EV cables and conduit front and back. I will apply some sort of sealant (and paint the cut metal of course).
