I didn't put any fuse or relay in, as it didn't have one in there originally. I only put a master switch in so I can disconnect the battery easily rather than having to open the plastic box up.
I used both methods - I crimped the main wire as it was already in place and I was told that would be ok. But I needed some extra lugs, so popped into an auto sparkies shop to get some. He soldered on 4 lugs for me for about $10 from memory. He used a blowtorch to heat up the cable.
I must say, the condition of your red seats is remarkable compared to the engine bay... Are they from the same car?!
