Default Fuse block install... pics

Today I added a second fuse block to the 40. Since I was adding:

CB Radio
Stereo
Ham Radio
ARB Freezer
Hella 4000's
GPS

I thought now was the right time! I did a play by play for the newbies over on mud...

Get the full run-down here.

But I thought I would post up a few of the highlights here

Nice looking job. Those Blue Sea fuse blocks seem to work really well.

Cool thing was, after all that wiring everything worked no way that should happen with Moab a week out

Thanks guys, it was easy, time consuming to make it clean, but easy. Down the road a circuit breaker like Corbet might be in order, but the fuse was already payed for years ago!

Looks very clean, does your ammeter show a high rate of charge?
