We all like guns but,,,, Heres a question for all,,Where are your fuses located? In the trunk area? Where is your battery located? What about the wire between the fuse and the battery how is that protected,,What if it had a short in between.? Your fuses should be as close as possable to the battery keeping the wire as short as possable,from the fuse to the battery,, How many have a fuse in the ign switch hot wire from the battery;Is it the proper gauge? Did you use the right gauge for that amp you just hooked up? How about them offroad lights? Rolling Eyes
Just a thought!

Don't know how to copy the link, but if you go to the Outfront Motorsports website and under the Home Page section there is a tab for building cars. They have a great bit on basic wiring. even can help the novice calculate amps to determine the wire size. James, you definately bring up a good point. Using the wrong size wire may get you by for a while, but eventually you will have trouble. I need to rewire quite a bit of the sand rail. Didn't have the fuse at the starter. Damn near started a fire. By the time I realized the problem I had a big wad of melted wire!
