Default Fuse block ideas

My 29 Tudor has been converted to 12 volts and I want to put a fuse blocks on the fire wall. Any ideas??
My thanks to all who responded,didn't know I had that many options, I knew the barners would come through.
I went with the one by Eagle. Liked the led feature and size. I am mounting it on the outside firewall.

Painless sells a universal fuse block that has no wire so you can use original styled wire

I found this fuse block on google. I also found the power distribution post.
I mounted both using Velcro tape.

I know this is overkill, but it works for me.

Bratton's sells one called an A-Plate that attached to the inside of the firewall. A little bit hard to get to for me.

A little on the expensive side for me... https://www.brattons.com/a-plate-acc...use-panel.html

I have not done any converting to 12V and the place I mounted my fuse (one fuse) was on the starter! Works great!

I made my own mounting plate and bought a fuse block from Amazon. No holes were drilled and mounting is to existing location above kick panel on left side and the right side I used a longer screw for the cable clamp next to the junction block on front of firewall. and it is held with a nut on the screw on the inside.

I use the same one as Dennis, I also got it from Amazon, but you can get it from most any marine supply house. Brand name is BlueSeas. I modified mine so that 6 of the terminals are switched with the ignition, the other 6 are on all the time. I mounted it to the firewall in the engine compartment with Velcro tape. If you want something smaller (ie: less than 12 terminals) they make all sorts of configurations.

These terminal blocks also have 7 ground terminals, one of which can be used to connect to a battery cable ground.

I believe Logo Lites makes the A-Plate mentioned above.

I like to use one like Eagle suggested, but I always use two of them. One is hot all the time, the other is switched. I use a 40amp relay on the switched one so the key switch is not overloaded.

I like those fuse panels because they are small, hold blade fuses, 6 of them, and an led turns on to indicate a blown fuse. You can mount all this on a hunk of metal that bolts to the firewall on some existing bolts or holes.

Just what I do...

I did SIMPLE, BOUGHT 3 G.M. blade type circuit breakers, with Pig Tail leads. Spliced a 30 Amp one in the YELLOW feed wire at the starter. Spliced 2, 20 Amp ones into the HORN & LIGHTS feed wires, near the CUT-OUT & it worked QUITE WELL.
