Well I thought I would post here and see if there is a good/easy spot to get constant power from under the dash. I am looking at installing a second small fuseblock that I could use to connect guages, and maybe an aftermarket radio. Id be using a relay to make it switched, but need a good constant power to use for the relay. Just though I would ask before I try crawling under the dash and poking around.

Solid yellow wire. It feeds part of the fuse block, headlight switch, and the ignition switch. If you overload it you will pop the fusible link. If you are going to be drawing very much power I would bring in a new fused wire from the battery terminal on the starter solenoid.

Thats what I had been kind of thinking. Im guessing thats what I will end up doing, just figured Id check if there was something easier that worked.
