Default New Fog Lights, Need help with where to put the switch.

So I went out and bought some fog lights today, installed them and everything. they work great. but the problem i'm having is that i don't know where to put the switch. Any ideas? I am thinking about putting in back up lights, and i already have two neon bulbs (one for each seat) where the feet go that are just connected through a cigarette lighter. I would like to transform those into just a switch and have it take power from the battery. is there any way to make a switch box or soemthing so i can just have them all together, and where would I put that?

It's gotta be asked. What's the obligatory "don't push" button on the right do?

Yea I made it myself, it was real easy. It just bolts on there. Then I took the piece behind it off and drilled a hole through it big enough to run my wires. I ran my wires under the dash and then out through the floor.
