if you want door switches, now is the time to add them.
here is a simple bracket i made to mount door switches in the upper hinge, using the center bolt.
the bracket is a piece of 10 ga steel, 1''x5'' with 2 holes drilled in it.

door open

door closed
I put my door switches in the normal boring spot. Also on the back doors.
The second pic is the back door. I also added a 2nd dome light in the back near the back doors.
