Default Some help cleaning up wires!

So i have a few things hooked up to my battery, its all zip tied and covered with tape, but is there a better way to not have so much hooked up to the battery? Can i use some type of distribution block?

thanks

Absolutely! I recommend using grounding "blocks" and distribution blocks to clean up wiring. My brother and I have even tucked them into wheel wells to reduce clutter (granted that takes a TON of time). This also helps in the event of loose wire, because the majority of your wiring is a central location. Best of luck, let me know if you have any other questions!

Distribution blocks are you best bet for cleaning up wiring. Best part is you can hide them anywhere, just make sure its easy access just incase something goes wrong with it.

This may be a silly question, but where is a good place to find distribution block for small gauge wires?

Yep! Totally forgot about this thread. "Barrier strips" and then the little metal jumpers next to them at RadioShack are perfect.
