Automotive Wiring Components | Good VS. Bad

Automotive Wiring Components | Good VS. Bad


welcome back to the channel well today’s video is gonna be about electronic components that you can find on Amazon and my experiences with the different types of different brands and just some observances so I’ll dive right into it I am very impressed with this brand fast Ronix these are the circuit breakers that they sell these are 40 amp circuit breakers I have to 30 amp circuit breakers already installed in the project Mustang and I’ll show you in a second but the build quality on on all of the stuff that I’ve had bypassed Ronix is definitely a step above the typical Amazon stuff that you find so if you’re looking for electronics components take a look at faster onyx them not being paid by them I never am on any of my videos with any of this stuff this stuff is really nice I also wanted to look at the blue see system stuff this is a typical fuse block that you would get and this is just something I wanted to have on hand it’s not gonna go on the project mustang but they make the quality build quality out of this stuff is very nice as well and everything has a nice little wiring diagram on it nothing feels cheap and flimsy definitely nice I’ve had other Amazon special I’ll show you over here fuse blocks like this one that you know I mean they’re okay they’re decent but they’re the plastic is very flimsy there’s no cover it’s not you know the terminals are kind of loose on them just not the same thing I do see system stuff definitely awesome so let me go ahead and show you in here still rewiring all this this whole car here but there’s the blue there’s the faster onyx circuit breakers and they come with these rubber boots covers that go over the top of the terminals just real nice stuff these terminal blocks are by blue sea systems very solid very very robust no wiggle and anything the boots are by faster Onix so real tight boots they don’t slip off I definitely highly recommend all the stuff by these two companies if you’re looking for stuff on Amazon because there’s a lot of crap I Amazon that you have to sit through another brand that I came upon is this Daystar these are fire wall grommets and if you’ve ever done any penetrations through a fire wall you’ll learn real quick that just born out a hole and the fire wall isn’t enough because that can cause like chafing around your wires and then that starts shorts so you want to install one of these and this is really nice and the best part about it is made in the USA Daystar definitely highly recommended I always try to buy I buy extra stuff because I never know what I’m gonna need it I also wanted to talk about this label maker a really good label maker piece of in my opinion I had a brother pee touch series and just far better I mean the user interface is a little nicer but the problem with this label maker is that the paper that this company DiMeo charge is way too much money for is crap two reasons one to peel off the sticky back the actual paper on the back of the adhesive tears so you’re sitting there fighting for three times they guarantee once it doesn’t say it on here if three times faster on your keystrokes to get your your tape out but then it takes you three times longer to peel the paper off the back of the sticky stuff and then on top of that it is completely inferior to the brother stuff because I’ll show you over here here is a new label that I just made here and you can already see look it just peels right off it’s only been on here for two days it peels right off again another label that I just made peels right off I didn’t touch any of this stuff it’s fine here’s the stuff that came out of the brother and this stuff is on here no peeling you it would take you it would take some time to peel that off so that diamo things going back to lows I also want to show you if you guys are trying to do wiring like find an example yeah here’s all my fast tronic stuff as you can see that I’ve used already here’s one of the dudes that are on there but if you’re doing wiring stuff and you’re buying these lugs get these on Amazon they these are only like 7 bucks and you get a whole pack of 10 West Marine or specialty on a motive store you’re gonna pay about five or six bucks for two so get all your your copper lugs over at Amazon I mean yeah these are made in China but it’s just copper it’s not you know just be careful where they don’t get it all greased up with your fingers but I just wanted to go over that I’m doing uh doing a pretty extensive rewire on this Mustang oh yeah also one last thing I want to show you these relays so if you’re in the market for relays these are the relays that I got off of Amazon for the ridgeline and at the time I thought these are pretty Hardy especially when you compare these to the stuff that you get it like advanced autoparts these are these are pretty nice they came with the kick the pigtails on them they had a nice nice wire on them these are the 30 40 amp relays and these were gonna go in the project Mustang and then I found this company fast Tronics let me show you what they got this here are and obviously this isn’t finished but here are two of their relays and these are actually waterproof which is really nice they also have the no spike suppression in them for say the radiator fans were turned on say they were triggered by the by the temperature control switch and you try to start the car and you have that surge spike when you try to start the car they had that suppression in there that’s gonna protect it and the gauge of the wire gauge on these and the feel of the wires these are much better quality wires also you get a 10 gauge wire on these versus the 12 gauge on the cheaper ones there’s also and this would take me probably two hands in a minute to get off but this boot that goes in here is all waterproof and the where the wires penetrate the bottom of the boot down here you can see that red color that’s all waterproof so very moisture resistant well technically waterproof so these would be good underneath the hood of a car like these are here and these I mean they’re ten bucks apiece you can get a pack of five of those for maybe twenty bucks put your money here the bracket also has more of an area here to drive in your screw this is a big deal when you’re trying to use a self taps crew you get more kind of real estate to work with there you get a better purchase on that so just uh just a better better quality electronic component faster onyx definitely would recommend them another let me see here one more thing I wanted to go over like find it oh yeah these these little fusible links I’m trying to avoid using these and the reason why is this wire if I can get this thing to focus this this wire shroud looks very similar to like the stuff that comes with like amplifier installation kits and the problem the problem with this and it would probably be okay but the problem with this is over time when this shroud I mean this wire shroud gets hot for a lengthy period of time underneath the engine bay it becomes sticky and kind of like gooey and that’s not very conducive to insulating the wire so over time the the luster on this kind of fades and it gets to be kind of concerning if it’s getting sticky that to me is kind of an indication that it could short eventually so trying to avoid those and trying to just run with with pure circuit breaker fuse blocks yeah circuit breakers fuse blocks the right gauge wire so that’s that’s it for the video today guys I just wanted to kind of go over components and products and stuff that you get on Amazon oh you know a lot of you guys are doing wiring projects working on cars you know there’s good stuff and there’s bad stuff with everything and Amazon is kind of a mixed bag and if you don’t really know how to filter through stuff you can get kind of lost in the in the Amazon jungle so anyway I just wanted to do this video if you guys have any comments or suggestions or wiring products that you guys abuse definitely let me know let’s start the conversation in the comments and yeah remember to subscribe and I’ll get you in the next video later
