y can wire all fomr battery but i woudl deff put a fuse on theere somewhere. i hooked most of mien off the cig ligther fuse smile What you do is:

1. put the lights too ACC
2. power source (battery) to supply
3. if you want the leds to light up use the gornd to somewhere connected to the frame. a good place is right behidn the driverside kickpannel si the big metal plate. just gorund it to one of the bolts back there smile
4. you can ground all ur lights to that smae spot as the led.

This is waht i have done, it maybe wrong adn unsafe but i am not electrician wink so i jsut ghettorigged mien smile

Supply volts is from battery positive or a key on hot circuit.
The On ACC is power to the device you want turned on
The ground is for the light in the switch to get ground and illuminate!

i would use fuses one on the power wire to the switches that is equal to all the outputs (i.e. neon 5 amps, stropes 2 amps,= 7 amps ) then also put on each indivdule circut

may seem like over kill but it will save a lot of time down the road if something ever happens
