I can't tell you where to mount it, or I'd be giving up my secret location. If you have the auto transmission, there'll be a plug under the dash with a jumper across the pins where the clutch safety switch would wire in. Put a hidden switch across these pins and the starting circuit will be interupted just like trying to start a manual trans truck without pushing the clutch in.

Springerpop has a good writeup about his kill switch which incorporates a true "hidden" switch activated by passing a magnet close to it. You can modify his plans to break the electrical circuit of whatever you need. See the link below:
