I hate messy wires. This is a great way to clean up all your wires and make your accessory wiring much safer and easier to get to incase of problems.
I started with a cardboard template for the mounting plate:
From there, I went to my local metal supply shop and picked up a 12"x12" section of 3/16" aluminum (I forget which alloy it was. Make sure it's workable though). I had the shop put a 90deg bend in it. I then cut it to the dimensions of the template and had it powdercoated:
Equipment installed on the mounting plate: Blue Sea Systems 12 circuit fuse box and a Blue Sea Systems 100A panel mount breaker.
I wanted to get nice solid battery terminals as well. I opted for military spec terminals. They are extra beefy and won't corrode on me.
Here is the panel mounted. As you can see in the photo, I also added relays to the panel for current and future accessories. I have relay sockets that will allow for easy removal of the panel if need be. I have room for atleast 3 relays on the panel.
I wish I would have taken before pictures. I feel a whole lot better about my wires now. Everything is nice and clean and easy to get to. I highly suggest one of these fuse blocks for auxiliary circuits. Let me know what you think!
