I don’t have a picture but my first trip under the dash looked just like that, and as soon as I got “comfortable” I realized I’d left the ratchet I was planning to use laying on the floor beside the car 🤬
And that is exactly why I had my wife nearby in that instance (sans camera) so that she could hand me whatever tool was required. (y)

I found, when putting my center gauge mount in, that removing the pax seat, lying in the floor pan on my side with legs folded up and head just barely under the dash working 'over' my head was the best arrangement. I'm certain it helps that I'm 5' 7". One thing for sure: working under the dash of a normal car is worlds easier than under the dash of an elige.
