I wanted to put a battery kill switch in my 75 Midget but could not think of a good location.
I finally found a good solution. No opening bonnet and undoing the negative cable.
I used a 3/4 inch multi-bit and used some touch-up paint for the edges.
1 19 inch negative cable and the rest is history.
BTW the switch has a very high amperage rating. It’s overkill but cheap insurance.
Pop open the glove box and give it a twist....presto!

That's the same place I put my fuel pump cut off switch when I switched to an electric pump.

I have used these switches on my sailboat and plan to use one on both the positive and negative wires coming from the battery in my midget.
