This my first posting in which I need advice on. :smile:
You see like I have mentioned in my introduction post. I'm pretty good at the mechanical side, but no so hot when its electrical. :|
So with that in mind I am wanting to fit a additional fusebox to accommodate front and rear recording camera's, ambient lighting, maybe a few other things too.
I'm thinking of fitting the extra fuse box near the original one. But I would like to know which would be the best wire to connect too. Has I am wanting the power for the extra fuse box to be live only when the ignition is turned on. :x

Success

Hi Myk,
After taking your advice on searching around here, I did find what I was looking for. Even though it did take me most of the night reading thread after thread.
But I did come across one which member Curro 101 posted in "Aftermarket parking sensors" (#98), which has a photo and description of fuse amplification. Then member JonB posted in the same thread (#108), in which fuse numbers was stated and what is on each ignition fed fuse.I have decided to go with fuse number '43', which (according to JonB) is for the horn only.
Either later today or over the coming weekend I will be attempting to fit the additional fusebox. Of course, I will be taking photos of each stage.

So once again I thank you for pointing me in the right direction. :x

Looking at your fuse box, do you see any open slots? Not missing a fuse, but the fuse holder installed (the colored plastic fuse holder). If you have a missing holder, you can obtain one, they are not universal, and install it and run your power from there. I think I used the empty 42 (RHD: Steering column module) slot and created a BUSS bar (see attachment). If you have Right Hand Drive, you could use the LHD slot 33.

Thank you Myk, that explains alot now. Hopefully I will be able to get the photos attached.
I had a small look today of where I was hoping to fit the additional fusebox. But the engine bay is so packed. That being said I now may have to put the additional fusebox within the battery top cover, or on the outside.
Only time will tell. Stay turned for further installments. :x
