Thanks fellas.

Here's a diagram. Could you please give me your recommendations on where to put fusible links/fuses/circuit breakers.

Hope you can read it.

The Red-2, Blk/Wht, and Red-3 share a ring terminal at the horn relay.
The Red-3 and Blk share a ring terminal at the starter solenoid.

I'm guessing I should separate and put fusible links on Red-2 at the starter solenoid and Red-3 at the horn relay. Probably, to be safe, I'll put the inline fuses on the Blk and BLk/Wht wires to the battery gauge as mentioned. Looks to me the cig lighter is unprotected or will a fusible link at Red-3 do the job?

Would you ever use a fuse and a fusible link on same circuit?
