Default Pep Boys compressor install

Saw the posts on Mud about the el cheapo air compressor from Pep Boys. Decided to buy one: $59.00 - 10.00 rebate = cheap! I haven't tested it on my tires yet, don't know how well it will work, or how long it will live. But here's a pic of it installed in my 40. This one uses clamps to go on the battery, but I think I'd like to wire it through switches, one on the dash, may be one in the engine bay too so I can shut it off from there if something happens. Problem is that this thing draws a lot of amps, so I'm just going to use the clamps for now. I'm still baffled by electricity, so may be one of the electron wizards here can post instructions on how to wire it with two switches. I mounted it in the engine bay on the driver's side fender...

Statistics show that 95% of all Jeeps ever built are still on the road. The other 5% made it home.
