Re: How to wire up multiple accessories to fuse box?

Not laughing here - I did the same exact thing for my under the hood fuse box I created. I just used a different housing - but I had to provide my own wire, relays and fuses and assemble the whole thing too.

These are the style fuse boxes you can find in the junkyard cheap complete with wire, relays, fuses, etc. They're also weather sealed. Imports are the best place to look for those as they tend to add on to existing systems. Older GMs had relay banks for e-fans and such.

That fuse box isn't a bad idea, would be a good start for a clean wiring harness.

Re: How to wire up multiple accessories to fuse box?

I have used an underhood fuse box from a 1990s Chevrolet pickup when doing late model engine transplants. They are weather sealed, have fuses and relays enough to handle anything you want to add and keep all the new stuff off the original Chevelle wiring.

Be sure to label or make a wiring diagram so you know what fuse and relay controls what.
