Default Engine bay Fusebox & relay options

what have people bought / found for 'nice looking' fuse and relay boxes for the engine bay to replace the chunky black plastic box standard ones..?

I'm after some ideas of what looks good. Not too worried about the in car fusebox as that'll be hidden anyway.

I've got a B16A2 from a 97 Del Sol wiring loom and fuseboxes etc..

Any pics or links?

I think thatís the way to go. Everything Iíve seen around seem boxy and a little large for the mini bulkhead area.. even the modular ones.

I'd be interested in this also, not even sure how many of the engine fuses in the big black box are still needed?

Are you talking about the Honda harness engine bay fuse box?

Thinking about it if that is what you are talking about, I havn't used any of that fuse box, most of it as far as I can remember is for ABS and Auxilary stuff you dont need, have you got a Civic Haynes Manual, you can work it out from there.
I am modifying a complete Honda Civic loom for my project as I am using the Honda steering column and alot of the Honda switches and under dash fuse/relay box, be carefull if this is what you want to do because some of the wiring you may think as redundant may be linked to something you need so dont cut anything out until your are completely sure it is not needed. It has been a while since I touched mine, by the way it is not yet finished, I cant remember where I am with it. I don't need things like sun roof, electric windows heated rear screen but I would like to keep wiring for stereo, clock wipers etc. your needs may be different so take your time and mark up everthing.

I use a MPI mini 4x maxi blade fuse unit in the engine bay to cope with the big stuff like main power distribution, and normal blade fuses in the car for the rest where they can be hidden out of the way.
