If you get it be warned, its just an empty 3 piece box with a crap load of loose terminals, fuses, and relays, well, just like the Cooper you posted, but this one has the terminals, and blade fuses instead of glass. It gives you a lot of wiring options that way tho. Buy the version that comes with 6 relays, can't buy them separately for less.

This winter I'm planning a rear Led bar for a functional reverse light, head light relays that are enclosed instead of just under the hood like they've been for a year, power for Water/meth. Right now its only powering just the experiment I'm currently working on from my SCCA autocross days, that I'd prefer not to get laughed at about until I've tested it and can show the results ( I'm optomistic from past experience) with screen shots from Torque. Let me grab ya pic of how i currently have it.


Try and excuse the mess, its mounted upside down atm, and i ran out of 1/4" loom

That's what interested me. To buy the Bussmann block then all the stuff I'm closing in on 5 times what your Iztor is (say that 5 times fast ).

I always prefer to go the high-end route but this could get it done for 1/2 the price. Plus it's smaller and can mount in more places. Definitely something for me to think about. Thanks for sharing.

Nice work guys! I am always a little jealous of electrical work because I know nothing still. I'll get it one day. I just gotta put in the time.

In other news, we sold our Heartland travel trailer on Wednesday. I can't believe it was the first guy who looked at it, didn't haggle on price, and has a cashier's check waiting on me when I bring it to him today. I wish they were all this easy. Now to start the hunt for a toyhauler. We shall see what happens. It is a little sad to see the other one go. We have had it since it was new for the last 7 years. Lots of memories with that thing.

I hope the families on the east coast are doing OK.

Last I saw there were over 500,000 without power and still in danger from Florence.

We in NE Georgia are going to get a crap ton of rain, but lucked out in regards to the wind. Last year when Irma made her way all the way up here we had 60-70 MPH gusts which wreaked havoc on the tall trees, but we made it through OK.

Living in the country, we have a stockpile of fuel for the 8000 watt generator, non-perishable food, MRE's, 100 gallons of water and the well pump which will run off the generator, 100 gallons of fuel, plenty of guns and ammo in case things go Katrina on us and about 4 cases of beer on hand.

Being in the country is nice most of the time, but if power goes out we are some of the last ones brought back into service. Good thing we are always prepared and have the homestead set up well to survive and be self sufficient for a while.

Anyway, good luck to those facing Florence in the face right now.

I called my 80 year-old Aunt on Tuesday morning (she lives about halfway between Wilmington, NC and N Myrtle Beach) she said she had friends coming over and ice blocks in the freezer and she would be okay. I explained that she could be without power for weeks.

Fast forward to Tuesday afternoon; my cousin calls and said her Mom's friends bailed and now her Mom (my Aunt) was upset and could I go get her. All flights were full or cancelled. I left within minutes and got to her place about 9:45 PM. I woke up at 5:30 AM emptied the freezer into a cooler, got my Aunt and her Chihuahua in the Excursion and made a break for high ground in GA.

Having friends is good, having friends that you can count on to be there is better.

Glad your rescue mission was a success.

Crap, I forgot all about Florence. Last I heard it was a Cat 4 making landfall as a 3!! I hope this who stayed are ok. This was not the storm to ride out with all the storm surge.

Was down in NC a lot last year for work. Hopefully everyone stays safe and heads for higher ground till this blows past.
Gonna be a lot of cleanup work to do.

Back here in the homefront of CO you'd think it's mid summer with 90's this week!
Did get a chance to have some fun last weekend watching/photographing a team roping event.
trying to import a photo but having issues again.

The new board system is a freaking nightmare for uploading pictures... I usually have to try multiple times and sometimes just end up giving in and saying screw it.

This dude... Lane Pittman is hilarious... Apparently, he has a tendency to go to the hurricane landing spot and talk smack and tell the storm it is weak...

This is what I was going to do if Florence came our way, I think I might have scared it off!

It seems that Hurricane Florence is a lot weaker than anticipated but it will still drop a lot of rain. The last report it has been downgraded to tropical storm status, thank God for that.

Yes, thank God for that!

The flooding and rain fall is already high and predicted to continue throughout the weekend. Power outages are going to linger on and get further west as the storm progresses. Cleaned out the gutters, fired up the generator, filled some water jugs and made sure all vehicles are full of fuel today.

Just cracked open the first cold beer for the Florence welcoming party here at the house!
