Dashboard is thick in different places. Tap on it
first where you want to put something. Couple spots
hear fuse panel are thinner. For those I use #6 screw
at 1/2", be careful. Other places much, much thicker.
Drill all.

I haven't mounted anything to the inside of the cabin
outer walls except wire tie holders, and there do the
same thing but they don't go in all the way due to the
thickness of the tie. I just mounted an electronics
mount above the steering window and wanted through
bolts. Same thing, if you just want screws. Tap and
figure out depth so you don't go through.

Others can say more about actual mounts of things on
the cabin wall.
