I have an I-pod setup by the glove box in a cup holder but I got tired of the kids asking me to change the volume or switch between modes. The stereo head deck is in the glove box and the wired remote is on the driver's side next to the throttle. All of the wired remotes that I have seen require a serious hole to be drilled. So I bought a wireless controller off of e-bay, unsoldered the IR LED and put it on the end of a wire (watch the polarity of the LED). Attached the controller to the fiberglass near the I-pod with velcro, ran the LED wire down through the cup holder (same path as the I-pod wire) and into the glove box. Mounted the LED right next to the pickup sensor on the stereo deck. The LED will even shoot through the grey plastic stereo face cover.
Here is a picture of the finished controller.
