A ring terminal looks like this....

See the 'ring' hence the name "ring" terminal.

A male terminal looks like this....

See the flat tab sticking out, hard to see cause it's inside that red shielding. It's basically just a flat blade off steel sticking out.

A female terminal looks like this....

See the slot for the flat tab for the male terminal to go in.

A butt connector looks like this....

Wire goes in each end to join wires, etc.

A inline fuse connector looks like this....

You use a butt connector on each end to connect the wire from (in this example) the LED power, into one end of the butt connector, then into the one wire from the inline fuse, to the fuse to the other wire from the inline fuse, to another butt connector to the other wire for the LED power. Make sense?

A switch (SPDT) looks like this....

See the two terminals in the back (with the flat head screws in the picture). That is how the wires go in and out of the switch.

This isn't my car but a picture I found on here, shows what or where I am talking about when I said to mount your switches in the fuse panel door. I used 'silver' toggle switches on mine, not the push button light switch kind like this guy used...
