Re: What can I put here? Improvements (Cockpit bulkhead)

Thanks guys. The Larson tub box is just like what I am looking for. That one is a little too deep but it looks like they have some other sizes.

Re: Wiring gauges in series? OK??

The way it is currently wired (and confirmed with the factory manual) is that the wire coming from the ammeter goes to the B terminal. Since that completes the circuit from the alternator that is how...
