    Something wrong with the ones you can buy?

    They're quite a ***** to make if you want one that's safe.

    Then buy one big distribution block.... Your not going to be able to fill up even two - 2 ga. spaces on a distribution block with all those 12-14ga. wires.

    An alternate solution would be to have a large 12v wire running behind the dash and just tap and solder where you need to get power to things. Tape the soldered areas with electric tape of course.

    Go to any boating/RV store, but a 12V fuse block (they make them as big as you'd ever want). That is what you are looking for.
