I will submit my lighted fuse box cover as the most UNIQUE!
Only seen it posted about twice on Challenger Forums.
Starting in 2011, first guy just did a glass cover; second guy actually put a couple of LEDs in the box.
But, he used a shop-made stainless steel rim to secure the plexiglass on top.

Mine is all DIY!
Is a Lexan window, inside the cover; and some old motherboard to fill-in the dark spaces.
Just installed the ABS cover today.

For right now (until I find a smaller/high amp switch, that's the engine bay light switch.
I had the hood plunger switch on my last Challenger, and had all kinds of "issues" with it.
So, wanted to go a different route this time.
Will made it lees obtrusive over time.

Why not hook up a mercury switch to turn it on and off?

That the one from 3GCustomz.
I bought the raw steel, and painted it myself.

The old PC board is a really nice touch.
