Building C-Lator currently.  OTS to follow.  Noticed that the as built pics on Ceriatone's site show the connections to the fuse flipped from how it appears on the layout.  Wires still run to the live tap on the Mains and the switch, its just that the wiring to the 2 connection tabs on the fuse are reversed.  Does it matter which fuse tab each wire connects to, or is it similar to the tranny taps where there is no polarity so it doesn't matter?

Doesn't matter, fuses don't have any polarity.

These days "best practices" is to have the fuse and power switch connect to the Live/Hot wire, and that's the important part.

Thanks very much.  Found another post in one forum which suggested as much by stating best to wire the live line to the tip (opposite of how the as-built pics on Ceriatone's site show it wired), but as this is my first build, felt best to check.  Since posting this, Nik also wrote to me advising that all that matters is that the live wire runs to the fuse before the switch.
