Moved wiring to fenders, now chasing gremilins

I just finished up moving a bunch of the wiring into the fenders of my 88LX to clean up the engine compartment.

The car starts and runs, lights work guages work.

Howver, the horn blows a fuse as soon as it is connected, and the wire (blue and red) that provided power for the lights on the cigar lighter is grounding out. The car has sat for awhile so it could be something else, but it is most likely something I connected back up wrong when re-routing the wires. I did not cut and solder, only plugged and unplugged. Any ideas?

sounds like something is grounding out. Look for cracked or cut wires that might be touching the frame or any piece of metal.
