Winch contactor mount?

Hey members throw up some pix of how you mounted your winch contactors.
I installed a winch on my 93. I’m disappointed to see the contactors have no protective cover. I saw @Manny post about dry box being preferred location so I’d like to see pix or cable routing

I bought a KFI ST1700 and used a KFI Mount–the engage switch is a toggle on top of the winch motor and actually contacts the bottom of the fender. I’m taking it out and will use it in my 86. Eventually I’ll get a Warn for the 300 so it’s easier to engage–I am not peeling up my sleeve and taking off gloves to go digging around in a muddy fender for that stupid toggle. Bad design.
I installed the ST1700; it was a very tight fit. The KFI mount had two 7/16” holes for mounting the winch front attachment bolt—and then provides 3/8” bolts for mounting. The washers collapsed into the holes. SMH.

So I used 7/6” bolts had to drill the winch frame; then bend the mount ears to get it mated to the frame. Looks good but the disengagement toggle still hits the bottom of the fender but very lightly. Now to git er warred up!
