Isolator switch bracket

Spent just over an hour last night making up the mount for the battery isolation switch last night from an offcut of aluminium chequerplate. The photo below doesn't show but the far side has about 3" going downwards; it's only sitting in the trans hole for the photo and will be mounted in about the same spot but on the interior side of the trans tunnel in approximately the location pictured.

The good news is, it looks like a factory Falcon starter motor wire will reach from this location to the starter motor without any further modification.

The reason I say "further" modification, is that I had to enlarge the holes to clear the stud for the isolation switch. Anyone planning on doing this, don't forget to make sure you have connectors that will fit on your existing cables, or buy some that will. Drilling/filing ring terminals is not particularly fun stuff!
