Make sure you have a proper ground. For instance, rust free, paint free bare metal and secured good. What size fuse are you using?

Sounds like you have power wiring/strands maybe grounding out,blowing fuses to me..Check make sure no loose/exposed strands are present,grounding out on power the wire.Check your power run see if you have cut the jacket on the wiring going through the fire wall also...possibly may have cut and exposed the wiring there?
