Damn you OCD. Plans/projects to come

Well after a bit over a year of riding with no problems (other then the fan and that doesn't count) I'm ready to invest more and do the wiring "right". As some of you know I have an aux outlet and heated grips that are hot wired from the PO. And I didn't like that for risk of battery draining(had that problem with my GS cafe) so I added some aircraft switch's with LEDs in them and inline fuses... Well now I ordered another fuse block (one I already got vanished..damn gremlins) and relay and an a b switch(for another add on). I already have wire connectors shrink wrap and so on.. So here is my terrible drawing of my plans. . . if you can actually decipher it congratulations if not you'll have to wait till next month for China to send me my parts (I'm a cheap SOB ):3

Good idea, though I don't necessarily want to **** with them, I just want them to wake up.
