TFI Coil Mounting locations - What are other doing?

Hey everyone. So a few ears ago I swapped over to the complete MSD ignition on my 82 Waggy. Previously I was able to fabricate a bracket that I attached to the top of the A/C compressor. Pretty solid location and close to the distributor. Well I just recently updated the HVAC to the Classic Auto Air system which comes with a new compressor, etc. I was never totally comfortable with coil on the compressor to being with.

So I was wondering what are other people are there doing?

Grizz...

I cut up the stock mount and mounted it to the drivers side fender. It seemed to work great.

Got a great OEM mount off a Fox body Mustang. Sits up on the fender well next to the cruise servo.

I'll see if I can find a picture as I've since removed it, but I used the bracket linked below and got it to fit perfectly in the stock location by the air cleaner.

Very cool I like it. What mods did you have to do to the bracket. I actually have a couple of those from the junk yard laying around...
