dash mounting a 12v socket without cutting

gday all.
Bought me a 12v socket assembly today while poking around the lismore cvan and camping expo, planning to ditch the shroud and flush mount the socket into the fairing which ive seen done on most stroms. I reckon thats what ill end up doing but before i acquire the tools i need to make a neat and tidy hole, ive found that its pretty easy to mount the whole thing as-is in the gap left by the madstad bracket. There is enough of a gap to slide the wiring down behind the instrument cluster. Attached to the battery directly with an inline fuse so its 'always on' with no relay. Will keep a close eye on it but for now im pretty happy with how it looks. Stuck fast with that h.ardcore 3m double sided gum.

Not bad, I used the same stuff and put it on the right side under the cowling.
