Underhood placement of relays, bus bars etc..

Ok.. I'm going to be installing my Concours switch panel, and hooking up the light bar that I've already installed here in a day or so. I'll also have back-up lights, and another set of forward lights at some point..

Questions;
-Where is everyone mounting additional relays?
-How many of you are putting in a busbar or multiple power lead bar? or are you just hooking all the light power wires directly to the battery?
-There isn't a ton of room to mount extra stuff under the hood... particularly if you realize that the battery has to come out at some point..

Pics would be fantastic. :-)

Here is my setup. But I'm non EPS. I think the EPS models use this space.

Very clean.

I ran power to all my toggles off a single 14g wire, coming out of the four toggles lights up the LED perimeter and done lights. The 5th is a spare and I will probably just have it trip a relay to power something else. The LED lights are under 10 amps total load.

Wouldn't this do the job? I don't figure I need one with built in fuses or relays, since any light's I get will most likely have that stuff in the wiring already.. the way my head works is I just need power... right?

What do ya think?
