Adding power to the Nissan

I installed a 12 volt power supply for powering my FTM-400XDR last winter, but I didn’t include proper fuses or use large enough wire, so I’m starting over, using a couple (excellent) Littlefuse Maxi fuse holders I bought over at Mouser.

First, I ran 10g bonded wire from the battery, using corrugated wire loom:


The run to the new fuse holders:


If you look carefully, you can see the little bracket I built to hold the fuse holders.

Here’s a view with the covers off, no fuses fitted yet:


And another view with the covers on:


The lead from the fuse box to the firewall isn’t visible, but it’s there, and here’s the loomed wire disappearing into the firewall:


This isn’t where it will pass through the firewall, but for now it’ll keep it out of the weather until I can finish the install.

Just my OCD brain trying to do it as well as I’m able.

Stay tuned for more.
