I am not looking for a battery terminal to go through the firewall.

Thanks for the help!
Is the distribution block in addition to, or instead of, a fuse box? Reason I ask is because all the wires need to be protected in some way (fuse, circuit breaker, fusible link) anyway, so it might be easier and more efficient to use a small auxiliary fuse box like mentioned in the thread: Ideas for race car wiring.

If the circuits are sufficiently protected the way they are now, the simpler blocks like shown can be used. The double block's terminals can be connected together w/a copper lug if extra capacity is needed.
