I had specified 10a in power and ground.  The guy argued that too. He thought it was silly to fuse ground.

He tries to argue that he can pick up hot and ground under the dash, but I insist that I want it done this way.. They quote $100 for labor and 3 hours to do the job, then the guy tells me that he'll just double up #16 wire.  (!!!)  If I want real #8, I had to buy two amp kits for another $130.
