I'm converting my manual locks/windows to power in my 1988 Scottsdale. I've got the dash harness, door harnesses, full power door cards with actuators/regulators, switches, door panels, and switches.
My fuse block does not have the pins to be able to plug everything in, which is simple enough to fix, just cut the plugs and hardwire everything. Now for the problem.
I got the 30 amp circuit breakers, but I don't have the pins in the fuse block for those either (the block in the dash by the parking brake release). Can I just get 2 inline fuse holders and wire them into the dash harness & plug in the circuit breakers like normal? If so, where could I wire them in? Also, does the 88-94 system require any relays, and if so how would those be wired in?

For hot leads, I'd go directly to the battery. For accessory, use the heavy wires coming from the ignition switch.
