Photos and suggestions request for Nitrous button placement

I just ordered an NX system and am looking to install it sometimes next week. I am pretty confident about the whole install (read the install instructions about a million times) but I cant decide where to place my buttons.

I will be having 3 buttons: bottle heater, remote bottle opener, and a arming switch. I am thinking of a couple of places where i could put them.

First place that came to mind was the bracket of the installation kit for my aftermarket radio i usually have cds there but i could make a plate with buttons and fit it there. Second place i was thinking of was in the middle console close to the shifter or cup holders.

And the third idea I had was on my door. I have a two door and only have two power window switches, and there is some space below the power window buttons. If i would get small buttons i think it would work.

I would appreciate some input on this, and pics would be great.

I just went out to my car and checked i don't think that's for me I am 6'4 and might hit it by accident, and might break the switch or turn it own by accident. Also with my bottle warmer, I kinda want to have it in sight so i can always tell if it is on or off when i get out of the car so it doesn't stay on and do damage. Thanks for the suggestion though Turbo Turtle

Any other suggestions?? Preferably with pics??

I used to have some switches on the dashboard just to the right of the steering wheel before the vent. I had three evenly spaced there. its easy to access and easy to see.

@ Turbo turtel: yeah 6'4 is not the most convenient seize for a small hatch back, but i gotta say the focus accommodates me pretty good.

@ Baracuda: Do you have any pics of your setup?? And was the dashboard ruined after u took the switches out again, that is one more concern that i have, i don't wanna drill holes into anything that's expensive to replace, because i probably wont keep this car forever. Good suggestion though i will look into that.

Any more suggestions anyone??

well, I never took them out. I just left them in for whoever buys the car(for sale currently) to do with them as they wish. they dont look crazy tacky, so its easier all around to leave them in.
