Thanks for the heads up, I have a different part of the rt relay and fuse box that I cut up saved for the final install that has the relays surrounded on all 4 sides by plastic but given your experience it might be worth adding a little deflector plate on the steering damper mount to protect all the little shocky zappy bits on both sides. I am trying to build something durable for the long (and dirty) run.
