That's exactly what I was getting at Edward, for the most part. I'm going to recess the plate down into one of the corners of the spoiler board. This way, the top of the plate will be flush to the top of the spoiler board. So there will be no need for computing distances or anything.

I like how you did your home switches, I did mine a litte different, I thought I'd share mine too.

X axis, just the switched superglued to the back side of the motor bracket, and an extra spacer glued to the other motor bracket (I've got motors on both sides which prevent me from using the above push button switch drilled through without an extra spacer.)

The Y axis, again glued, and a spacer glued.

The Z axis is a bit more complicated, I still glued the switch, but built a way to trigger it using some extra vex parts.

I still have to run the wires, and test it all out, I'll probably drill the holes and mount these switches a little more permanently, though the superglue seems to hold VERY well for this application.
