Cooling fan direct switch

Hi Guys,

On old civics, corsa's, etc. where a cooling fans thermostat has gone is it theoretically possible to wire the fan directly to a switched live in some way and run a switch to the cars dashboard so you can switch the fan on independantly?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Also, if it's possible, where would I run the power from?, probs just take it from before the thermostat.... and cut out the middle man so to speak...

just run a switch to the fan switch/thermostat wires- simples
loads of early festers had fan running constantly with wires bridged
