I work on auto electrical for a living. I don't wire race cars but I have wired my Malibu. I crimp solder and heat shrink every splice and connector. Some say solder joints can break on a race car, I call B.S. on that. Ive seen and repaired many broken solder joints on circuit boards but never a crimped connection in 25 yrs. That being said, I would buy a 10 or more ckt fuse block, I would use ground buss bars under the hood and inside. I would use Bosch style relays to power up all my motors and pumps. I would most definitively use quality parts from. > http://www.colehersee.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I used a switch & relay panel by K&R, makes for a neat install and includes all labeled wires & connectors.

^ That's top notch work there. Did you wire that? Its nice to see solid wiring for a change. I see so many blue and yellow but connectors on really nice race cars, and hack wiring jobs, it amazes me they run at all. Its time consuming to wire things up properly but it is worth every second and penny to do it right. Your car is a fine example of that.

Thanks, yes I did all the wiring. I have a background in low voltage wiring. Did high end car audio for 5 or 6 years, then residential/commercial security/cctv for another 5 or 6 years.
