Step 1: Wiring

The wiring is very simple. I have horrible soldering skills but i can wire this up in 20 minutes. Connect all the positive leads to one wire and all the negative leads to the other wire.
Run the Negative wire to the negative battery connector.
Run the positive wire to the toggle switch and run a wire from the toggle switch to the positive battery connector.

Enjoy the project and subscribe to my YouTube channel! Thanks!
