Default RIMS Control Panel Parts

hello everyone. i've just bought an almost complete RIMS tube setup, but need a few more parts and would really appreciate any help with a wiring diagram.

i want to build something similar to this build, but will be running at 15amps and with one pump.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f170/my-...-panel-361757/

I already have a few parts so these are what I'm looking to buy. If anyone has any info, or just could check to make sure I'm not ordering something that won't work with this setup, please chime in.

for wiring, I'd like things to be wired so that the pump had to be on in order to turn on the element. I'd also like a main power switch.

already have (see photo):
25 amp SSR and heatsink, main relay, and all RTD components - from tube to panel mount and PID hookup.

PID: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...th=1&products_ id=3

switches - three of these - 1 main, 1 for element, 1 for pump:
http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...5175f37a85e652

for the switches, do you have to have them operate a relay, or can it operate the pump receptacle on its own?

fuse for PID - auber or radio shack?

receptacles - home depot?

wire - what gauge? different colors recommended?

3 terminal blocks - hot, neutral, ground? where do you buy these things?

I'm in the same process, and have the same questions.
I'd like to do a Pump / Rims control in a Toolbox similar to this one.

May be a little more expensive but auber has a pretty good box that willl fit a heatsink and has vents cut in it.. they are great to deal with most of my stuff came from there. (including your stuff you got from me lgxg)
