Well, finally got this done this weekend. I routed all the wires, then this weekend I mounted this monster. (I have the 21 circuit, a bit overkill I know) Anyway, here are some pics in case it might help anyone else. I had already bolted in the windsheild wiper motor to make sure there is clearance. I went sideways because of how the wires lay, they are flatter coming out the bottom. So, to get the most length, I mounted it sideways. I have to take out the clutch/brake assembly one more time, and at that point I will run the wires over that. Now comes the fun part, attaching these stupid things. Guess I should go buy some soldering stuff and start learning. Any recommendations for a good soldering kit or just get something inexpensive at wally world? Also, I have the firewall pad attached by fasteners which is what the kit comes with. Is this enough or should it be glued in some areas?

Thanks.

Looks good. The clips that hold the firewall pad in place should be enough. I assume the circuit box is going directly against the firewall? or against the pad? Held in place by sheet metal screws?

Yes it is directly against the firewall, but I didn't use sheet metal screws. I got long bolts with lock washers and drilled holes. I wanted to be able to cinch it down nicely withouth worrying about pulling the screw through the metal.
