I feel you, Ive been lucky as im a machinist and I build my switch panel and engraved it here at work. Picked up some cole herse hd rocker switches. We use oil and water resistant wire here so for last few years everytime I see a piece in scrap bin long enough to amount to anything I take it home. But im still after buying switches,relays,fuse panel,and wire connectors im prob 175.00 in.

Wiring. One of the most expensive, time consuming tasks in building a hotrod. I hate wiring, but I love it too. One can get creative with it. One can also use it to completely destroy (burn) a hundred grand's worth of other parts if the wiring ain't right.

For sure.

I weeded through my headlight harness and taillight harness to get rid of any wires that weren't needed.

Build it out of FET's. You can parallel FET's and make a real high current "relay".

70 amp relays are cheap, if mechanical.
