Go back to VB.  Because of that box MGB (and many others I have worked on)
don't secure the switch from behind but from in front with two screws or
just a push-fit spring-clip.  Even then you will have the job of fiddling
the wire from behind the dash close to where the cross-brace joins the side
panel through the box, this wire is attached to the switch before the switch
is secured to the A-post.  Another alternative is to secure the switch to
the door - where you *can* get to the back of it - instead of the A-post and
take the wire along the curve of the hinge and from there into the cabin.
