After looking at my interior for quite a while, I decided to place my new HKS Type 0 turbo timer in the ashtray.
Here you can see the "before and after" look.
The ashtray is still usable for the most part.
I used a coping say to cut the hole in the ashtray for the timer. I scribed a line against the ashtray along the outline of the timer to go by. I had to cut the hard plastic part of the ashtray and the rubber face separately.
Here you can see the aluminum bracket I made to hold the unit secure. I used the screws that hold the unit together (red arrows) in the rear to hold the bracket onto it. The holes pointed out in blue are drilled and tapped for the screws that hold the bracket to the bottom of the ashtray. You have to mount the aluminum bracket to the timer, then the timer to the ashtray from underneath.
I cut a hole with a Dremel tool with the large sanding drum in the back corner of the ashtray for the turbo timer wires to pass through without interfering with the operation of the spring unit that keeps the ashtray from coming all the way out when you open it. Then the wires pass easily through the small opening in that same corner in the slot where the ashtray goes in close proximity of the ignition harness and ground point.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
