Its time to
find a home for your in-line fuse. The in-line fuse holder I got
at Radio Shack is pretty beefy. It comes as one piece and you're
supposed to snip it in the center to make it two pieces. The 20-amp
fuse goes between the two black pieces, and the black pieces clip
together to house the fuse.

to pick a clean, dry, easy-access location in the "rock-light
circuit" for your fuse. I chose this section of wire against
the top of the firewall to be my fuse location. You absolutely must
install some sort of fuse. What if you're going through a water-crossing,
and your light short-circuits? Its much nicer blowing a fuse than
frying your wires!
Cut the wire
at the location you choose to install the fuse assembly, and crimp
both ends of the fuse assembly to the section of wire you just cut.
It doesn't matter which direction the ends face.
Insert the fuse
and clip the ends of the housing together. The ends screw together
and seal well, but its only a quarter-turn. This is somewhat unnerving,
so I took about an inch of electric tape, and wrapped it around
the connected ends. This will keep out moisture and make sure it
doesn't fall apart. In the picture you can see the completely installed
in-line fuse assembly.
