The mounting bracket for MIMA is mounted to the left pillar on the front of the shift console using the bolt that is already there. The board must be removed from the bracket prior to mounting the bracket.
The upright steel tube will protrude through the notch in the bracket. The rear of the MIMA controller has a protective fish paper shield to prevent shorting of the board to the tube.
Loosen the bolt, slide the bracket behind the bolt head and the washer, and down as far as possible, then tighten the bolt. Remount the card to the bracket, and bend the board/bracket slightly away from the upright so the upright just clears the fishpaper.

|The distribution board|
This card sits in the gap between the shift mechanism and the front of the shift console. The green wire from the distribution card will connect to the metal brace as shown. The MIMA Main and Aux cables will connect to the distribution card as shown. The DB-25 that comes from the MCM plug in adapter connects underneath the distribution card. And finally the 16 conductor duct tape protected ribbon cable from the ECM plugs into the right side of the distribution card.
|Mounting the MIMA kill switch|
The switch can be mounted in one of the three knock outs above the small coin holder to the left of the steering wheel. Simply pop out the knockout by prying out with a knife. Drill a 1/4" hole in the center, mount the switch, run the wire, and plug into the kill switch connector on the MIMA card.
