Love the ashtray idea my friend. I came up with an idea on my own for the same kinda thing. I bought a ford OEM console armrest (i have an ebay contact that sells em) and got myself a really cool switchboard. I installed the armrest (in what would be the stock location on a standard focus, I have an SVT) and installed the switchboard inside the armrest console (you open the armrest and there's the switchboard). I used "F-18 style" switches with LED's to give it a James Bond/Knight Rider kinda look. So far I think I'm the only guy that's done it (at least no one has posted about it that I've seen so far). If you guys would like pics I'd be happy to get you some. Just thought I'd throw the idea out there since we're talkin switchpanel stuff :)
