Question:   When wiring up accessories w/in your car are there any set of rues and/or standards to follow ?  
Should the wire gauge be #18 or larger ?
Should you use bullet connectors for Audio connections and spade connectors to power accessories w/12v ?
When providing a pos and neg feed to an accessory:  
Should the hot wire be female and the ground wire be male ?

I know if its mine I can do whatever I want, but I don\t like that attitude. I was trying to be a little more compliant with the rest of the DIY community.
