Default where to put Blue Fuse block on FJ60?

I'm cleaning up a bunch of wiring in the 60...I have the Blue Sea 6 fuse fuse box. Here's my engine bay...I was thinking to put it on the PS firewall. Where would you put something like that?

to add some info...the items connected to this fuse panel are mostly engine bay things (fog lights, compressor, roof lights)

When I did the second battery in my old 60. I put the same fuse block you have onto the driver side kick panel, next to my left leg. It made for an easy and clean install. I had it inside for all my radios, 12v plugs etc. It was easy to run wires through the rubber grommets in the firewall into the cab. Under the hood get's pretty dirty, but if your fuse block seals well, might be ok.

I would probably mount it on your inner fender next to the compressor. Looks like there is space. Try to put it somewhere it keep your accessory wires as short as possible. That seems like the best compromise between the fog and roof lights. Compressor right there. Make sure the hood spring does not interfere.
