aux power and swith box

i noticed i didnt do a write up for my switch box aux out let thingy...

well here it is.
i got
1. $5 hobby box from radio crap
2. "cf" aircraft switches with purple LED's
some good wire
heat shrink
wire ends
wire guard
zip-ties
random metal brackets and screws i had laying around
.....
tools...
stepper drill bit
rat tail file
wire strippers
lighter
crimps
screw driver
.....

so first thing was first. i took the hobby box and laid out the switches and aux power outlet on it and and did as much of the wiring off the bike as i could (hooked up one switch and outlet together and then it was time for part i dread...
i tore the front of the V apart....(again)
chopped out the main power wire for my hand warmers. replaced it with better red wire that was running from my aux fuse box (as appose to hot taped right to the battery, ready to drain my battery with the easiest of bumps of the switch(P.O. did that one) and ran it to the second switch then from the switch to the warmers hi,low,off switch so i know its off , then ran a power wire for the outlet also from the aux fuse block.
then bent up the metal brackets (man i need a table vice) to mount the box to the windscreen bracket thingy (i know so technical right?)

got it all mounted up insulated all the wires and zip-tied everything up all nice and clean, put the wind screen on (huge mistake) then put the front and sides back together (pain in the ar$e with the wind screen on)
