Im ripping out all wiring from my blown 73 Laguna and doing a race car style re-wire. Battery is in the trunk and am installing a 10 circuit fuse box plus a bank of relays on the firewall. As the battery is in the trunk I'm going to power the fuse box from the starter. Here are my questions:

(1) what gauge wire should I use to power the fuse box from the starter? I'm going to run a wire from the starter to a bus bar, then to the fuse box.

(2) I plan on using a circuit breaker between the starter and fuse box to protect it...what amperage circuit breaker should I use?

(3) the fuse box will be hot all the time with this arrangement...is this acceptable?

(4) as the battery is trunk mounted is it acceptable to run the alternator charging wire to the starter via one of the studs on the bus bar thats connected to the starter. Is this adequate to charge the Battery?
