you can put the circuit breaker in the spot indicated and run your power from there

The power for the windows is not constant, it's switched so they can't be opened without the ignition on. In the first photo the fuse for the gauges is indicated so why not use that wire which is pink/black

i found the the wiring harness for the windows and put the fuse and wire to the fuse block. but since i am running the wires to a rocker switch in the dash. i was thinking since i have some gauges that need power can i use the other part of the window power wire that goes into the master switch panel as power since they are only on when the car is on.

the wire to power the gauges is already in the dash so why make it more difficult. Maybe that mud you drove through has effected your thinking process....:D
