Recycled Fuse box

I needed a place to get rid of all the fuse holders looking like an octopus on my battery but didn't like the look (or price) of some of the aftermarket fuse blocks you can buy.
Took a trip to the local salvage yard and poked around for something to use. Found this little gem in an Exploder and removed it along with a couple of feet of it's spaghetti.
Made a bracket out of a piece of angle and traced all the wires and labeled them for future use. Almost looks factory

I like it. I've been using the west seas box for a few years now but am planning to do something similar mostly to house all my relays. I want to find one that uses the standard blade fuses though, not the mini or maxi ones.

I wanted the standard fuses too but all the newer vehicles have the mini or even micro fuses now. Getting harder to find them in the salvage yards now..esp ones that have a cover still attached.
