That looks pretty nice, what size enclosure is that? Any pictures of it with labels, and perhaps a picture of the plug area?

It's a 12x10x6. It's going to be a bit of a tight fit.

My BIL has the enclosure now to wire it up. I'll take pictures once I get it back.

BIL? I feel like that's an acronym I should know...

Small enclosure makes for tight wiring, but huge enclosures are equally strange in my opinion so I like the thought.

Yea I'd say the kit is pretty complete. The schematics leave a lot to be desired. My brother in law called me last night and said that there are some things on there that don't make sense. He's an electrician so I believe him. I also looked at it and there were a few things I would have done differently. Other than that though, all the parts seem to be quality, and the shipping was fairly fast. I got the heatsink seperately from heatsinksusa.com Their prices are a bit more reasonable.

So anyone looking to do this kit. Get a bigger enclosure. I think I may either need to redo it, or move the contactors to a sub panel fo some sort
