I hate having to fix a bunch of things before I can use the spreadsheet by actually changing data. Inevitably 1 in 3 of the spreadsheets I receive that are done that way have left out one of the cells integral to the computation.

Now what are these shortcut keys you speak of? lol
I am becoming a SUMPRODUCT snob too. No need to multiply your quantities by your cost each. And SUMIF is pretty awesome.

27? You're still a pup. I doubled that last week.

Start taking care of yourself. From now on, all the abuse you used to heap on your body will come back to haunt you in later years. Now is the time to stop the smoking, excessive drinking, staying up too late and lack of exercise. You'll pay for it later, in spades. Get in the habit of being healthy, and you will reap those rewards in another 27 years.

The plan is to use 30 amp switches for the extra strength. Wouldnt 30 amp switch be safer vs say a 20 amp switch?

So far i got
Headlights - off/low/high
windshield wipers - off/low/high
engine off/on
Radiator fan off/on

Probably more stuff but cant think of it now.

Does it matter if you're using a 10a fuse to protect your equipment?

It's not really that big of a deal. I mean, a typical halogen headlamp is rated for around 60 watts, which equals 5 amps at 12 volts. So even if you use a single-pole switch with both lights on one contact, a 20A-rated switch still gives you a 2:1 safety margin.

There are some radiator fans which approach or exceed 20A territory, but these are the minority.

If you're going for safety-margin, this switch is rated for 350A:

Because i want to use the same switch. Middle for off, up for high beams, down for low beams. Same with wipers. The other dont need to be double throw but i'll get double throw just for similarity so i dont have bunch of different looking switches.

Hehe. That'd make a lovely coffee table in the lounge.

I have the feeling they added hoses on purpose to force you to go to the dealer.

The Honda has a zillion vacuum lines because they were trying to meet late 80s emissions requirements with a carb when everyone else had gone to fuel injection. The FD has a zillion for no good reasons, Mazda just seems to have a fetish for them.
