I pretty much gutted the starter box and re-wired the whole thing including the motor (wouldn't advise doing this unless you willing to take the risk of it not working anymore).
I replaced the on/off switch with an automotive on/off switch to handle the amperage.
Also replaced the wire with 12 gauge wire (left over from another project).
Routed the negative wire from the battery directly to the motor.
The positive wire from the battery goes first to the on/off switch then from there to the contact switch, after the contact switch on to the motor.
this is a simplified explanation if you wish to wire in the front power panel run the negative wire directly to the battery and the positive wire to the on/off switch so that when the switch is in the off position you get no power to the power panel. (the power panel will drain your battery over time if you don't wire it this way)
If you have the banana jacks on the side of your box wire them directly to the battery this way you can power anything directly from the 12V battery.
