Power Distribution Block Question

I'm looking for what others use or recommend for a power distribution block. What I want to do is eliminate having to run all the electrical accessories to the battery and have a bunch of ring connectors on the battery posts. I don't need an expensive fuse block because everything already has it's own fuse or relays already in it's line. I have seen some power blocks cheap at local auto parts stores but none of them have covers and I don't want exposed electrical connections. They also do not have them where they just have one power and one ground that hooks up to them. I want to be able to just run one power and one ground from the battery to a power block and then hook all the ring connectors from the accessories into that one block.

Eastern Beaver components are top notch.

I've looked at the Eastern Beaver stuff. Although I have no doubt it's good stuff it's a little pricey for what I want to do.

I bought a block from Princess Auto ( Canadian for Harbour Freight) and put it in a small Pelican box. The grounds are all on one bolt. Still cheap.

WOW! Just reviewed the Eastern Beaver site. Looks like some great stuff. Will have to put an order together (fuse block, H4 headlight delete) would be on the top of the list. Holy, I thought some of my other hobbies were expensive. Every week it is some new kit to add to the Glee or some piece of riding gear.

Every time I order something from EB it's a little hard to pull the trigger because of cost. Every time I get it installed I am totally happy with the purchase.

Please post up if you figure out a more modestly priced solution. i'm looking on ebay but i don't really know what i need I just put in an order with EB for relays and a bunch of switches but I didn't buy the PC-8 because of the cost. Just not sure what to get in its place
