    Ran a 12 gauge wire, through a 30 amp fuse, from the starter bolt up to a fuse block in the roof of the cab.

    The blue electric box on the left houses the fuse block. I cut out the sides to run the wires and I attached it to the roof of the cab. The fuse block was attached to the electric box.

    From the fuse block I have three 18 gauge wires running to the electric box housing the 3 toggle switches. Cut out the back of the electrical box for the wires, drilled 3 holes in the faceplate, and attached the box to the cab frame.

    One toggle is for the 2 LED light strips on each side of the cab. This runs through a 5 amp fuse.

    One toggle is for the 2 front roof work lights. 35 watts each and runs through a 10 amp fuse in the block.

    The third toggle turns on the backup camera and front monitor. This runs through a 5 amp fuse.

    I have a fourth wire from the fuse block to the wiper motor switch The wiper motor is run through a 10 amp fuse in the block.

    All items are grounded to the cab frame.

    I really like the idea of a backward looking camera. My neck doesn't turn as well as it used to. But without a cab, it's a big challenge finding a good place to mount the monitor.

    Why doesn't doesn't yours work good? For general backing up in and out of the barn, and for backing when snow blowing the driveway I like it. When I am backing up into a tight place, I still turn around just to make sure.

    Since everything is attached to the cab, I just have to remove the bullet plug coming Off the fuse at the starter, and the whole cab will come off intact. In the summer I would rather be in the open. The cab would be too hot anyway.

    My system is a disappointment because of using cameras and a monitor bought off of Fleabay, and the glare on the monitor makes it all but useless except in low light situations. I think if I had a cab the glass would block a lot of the glare; but the canopy on an open station tractor just isn't enough to shield the monitor.

    Oh well, it was a fun experience constructing it.

    Assuming Google cooperates, this is what I had posted on their Picasa web albums before they shut it down in favor of some other Google garbage product.

    Wow impressive. I wish I would have gotten a bigger monitor. Kind of small.
