That is right at 17amps through the switch for two lights.

Yeah, should be fine. I'll check it our tomorrow morning when it's light, and buy some new fuses.

Just for future reference , the formula for changing watts to amps is P=IE. where P equals power in Watts, I equals amperage, and E equals voltage. So to change watts to amps , P/E= I.
In this case 200 watts divided by 14.3 volts is 13.99 amps. Using 12 volts = 16.67 amps.

Looks good. Going to etch the "Jeep" in brass like the switch plate? You should throw in some of the artwork from early-on in the build to fill the gap to the left of the glove box.

I"d considered it, but I think Im going to get some OEM badges and do a custom plate integrating them.
