if you run a pair of big lights, either use a metal switch, or use a relay. i have found that the plastic lighted toggles will melt when the terminals get hot (55 and 100w lights)
my stereo is connected to the fuse panel to the acc, but it has its own fuse inline.
if you look around you will find a good place for a terminal strip, i would say somewhere near the passenger kick panel.
you could bring your wire up thru one of the ac grommets since the battery is over on that side (i keep forgetting my battery is on the other side when trying to think of mine as an example)

works really well so far..
mines mounted on the firewall where the cruise vacuum unit would normally sit...
I'm gonna have 2 panels. one constant 12V, and the other switched off the ignition...
one inside would be nice, if you're doing the stereo and such....

Example: (using tables and guides from the Canadian Electrical Code)
#12AWG wire, 90 degree C. temp rating
Rated Ampacity = 25A (CEC Table 1)
Assuming max under-hood ambient temp of 60 degrees C
De-rating factor = 0.67 (CEC Table 5A)
New Rated Capacity = 25 x 0.67 = 16A
If I run the same example with wire rated for 110 degrees C., the capacity becomes 39A.
