I actually just did this procedure

It was incredibely easy to do! I followed the basic guidelines of the "how-to" that somebody will inevitbely post on here, but the way I did it made it a little bit easier.

You need:

1- 10 inch stretch of wire
2- crimp connecters that have metal ends that are roughly the same shape as those on the fuse, these two pieces go into the '46' fuse slot.
1- iniline fuse holder for a 7.5 amp fuse.
1- pre-wired switch for 10 amps and up.

You need to drill a hole in the fuse panel cover with a drill bit roughly the same size as the switch.

hold up i'll paint a picture

I bought the wire, the inline fuseholder, the plug crimps from radio shack.

I bought the switch and the wire connecting crimps from Kragen auto.

All in all I think it was about 20 bucks.
