Fuse block installed

This has turned out to be quite the dragged out process due to some other non auto related things I have been working on but finally the fuse block is roughly installed. I had plans to use another bracket but it didn't seem all that necessary. If you look close it is only held on by one bolt but still quite solid. The double sided tape didn't work quite as planned but that is easy to revisit and is helping to not scratch paint.
The bracket itself is some pretty basic 22 gauge aluminum cut with a dremel and some rubber between bits to soak up room and any noise or vibration.
At the moment I have only moved the constant for the radio to the fuse block instead of direct to battery. Maybe tomorrow I will figure out all the wiring for the light I plan to hook up. Trying to find the shortest length from back of the cab to inside is still pretty dang far. At least I know my wiring will work to have both sets work of the one switch.
After figuring out the routing I only need to do the switch mounting. There are some blanks in the cab I plan to use for location but need to figure out proper mounting.
In all this I wiped off the inside panels with a rag and everything is in great condition so I need to work on cleaning this whole engine bay and then something on this truck will start feeling restored.
