Took about an hour to install not including all the clean up of the existing wiring mess, manufacturing of new cables and installing/mounting new battery trays and batteries. I've been very happy with the results. KISS at it's best.
I'm planning on adding the blue seas and read that you may need to buy extra stuff outside of wire such as a bus bar? How much extra wire did the install require? Thanks for the reply.
