    While it was raining today and stuck inside, I prewired my fuse panel with relays as far as I could go. I need a few more two-to-one connectors which I’ll get tomorrow. Was going to crop the photo down to fit but can’t get it small enough. Cry  Maybe I’ll figure out a way and if I do I’ll post it. 😉 Here’s a link:

    Nice neat work! Wish the orinal builder had taken that much care with mine. Do you plan on labelling the fuses, once wired?

    Where are you finding 2>1 spade connectors?KentT2015-02-22 18:34:26

    Very nice work Allen

    I wish I had built a board like that when I built my Duchess.

    I mounted the fuse box to the “firewall.” But my relays are simply wired into their respective circuits. When I bundled the wiring under the dash, the relays got tied up in those bundles. Luckily in the 33 years since I built her I have not had any electrical problems.

    Kent – I jusT went on eBay and typed dual space connectors and picked the ones I needed. Should have looked more because these; also on eBay are better. I think.

    Thanks for that Johnstone lead – I’ll try to locate some of those. I can find the piggybacks locally, but I prefer the others (which VW used) much more if space isn’t an issue. With piggybacks, it is difficult to unplug one wire without unplugging both….

    Wow that looks nice! I’m hoping to do something similar when I rewire the mess behind the dash. 

    As far as the 2-1 connectors I had picked up a box at Napa Auto and it had a mix of the piggyback and side by side.
