Ok, so I want to install another outlet in my exterior walls. The problem is, I want this to be a flush mount outlet, and I have vinyl siding. I am having trouble locating hardware that will let me do this. Home Depot had 1 of those J-Block type items, but those can only be installed when the siding hasn't been installed yet, and even then, it was the wrong color. I have been researching this for a few weeks now, and can't believe how little information there is on how to do this. I have full access to the inside of that exterior wall, so I am hoping I can find some good suggestions here. Thanks!
See if any of these will work for you.

Rupp: That's recessed, not flush mount, so I don't think this would work with the weather proof box I want to install on top of it. I did find some other useful stuff on that link tho, thanks for the tip!

This might be another option, it's not a flush but I think they can be flush with the soil. Obviously they can be installed at the base of a shrub making them basically invisible.

Be careful. You may need an "in use" type cover depending on what the outlet will be used for. Most outdoor outlet covers are not the "in use" type (meaning they are not suitable to leave something plugged in all of the time such in bad weather).

If you buy one of the siding removal tools, you only need to take off the sections you will have to cut, I've used them to replace broken pieces of siding. The tool is basicaly a little hook that seperates the top of the siding where it snaps together. You then use it to put the last piece back in place. I bought mine at Home Depot for like $8.
