Default 12v sockets local source?

Anyone know of a local place that sells Blue Sea 12v sockets? Been working on a couple of small projects on the truck and I need a couple of those sockets.

Yup, that's where I buy all my electrical parts. I use the Blue Sea Fuse box as well. You can buy wire by the foot with any size clamp

I get all my wire from this source. I don't have much in the way of options down here but they definitely beat West Marine in price.

http://myworld.ebay.com/genuinedealz...p2047675.l2559

But I did source my Blue Sea fuse block and 12v outlets from West Marine.

I always wonder what type of wire to buy. So many choices. There are dual batteries and improved accessory wiring in my future.

welding cable works well, is usually available cheaper than regular cable, and is plenty big enough.

I like the tinned marine wire I get from the ebay source above. Its not the cheapest but is double insulated if more than one wire bunched. I started using it long time ago and everything has held up great from engine bay to interior. It also pretty flexible which is a plus.

We had a pretty good discussion when I did my original install on the matter http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...ght=12v+outlet
