removing cowling

just ordered an eastern beaver pc8 and horn relay harness to hook up A steibel along with my oem horn on my k3 v . So the question is how much of the cowling am I going to need to remove to install the fuse box and horn?I know there are posts on the sitefor this but i'm worn out trying to find the clearest one.never done this before and not too good with wrenches but my wife is much better. (she usually slaps my hand if I touch one) thanks in advance she will really appreciate it.

Most people mount fuse blocks under the seat. There are many different locations for mounting Stebel horns and many different topics on where and how to mount them.

The cowling is not difficult to remove, two pieces around the front of the tank, two pieces on the sides, one under the chin, and two fairing halves. It takes about 15 minutes or so to get it off.
