Retrofiting Ground Bus

Well am I excited or what.........yep ...yep

In the process of fitting a new electronics suite to my boat the Rayamrine SPX30 autopilot core pack calls for a ground as does the radar array.... the boat didn't have one so humble beginnings now it does....

The ground bus is now behind the Panel neat and tidy grounding through the motor/shaft with connections running to the radar and the core pack.

The second pic shows the rats nest which is the next task sorting out a tidier negative bus bar arrangement.

Very satisfying seeing things tidy up.
