hi I would just put an inline fuse on the feed or supply wire for the likes of the lights you can just fit them in the loom without cutting anything and its all under the dash out of sight
Being a technician/electrician I don't recommend doing it like that. It's an easy way to add fuses to an existing wire loom, but If you're rewiring the tractor completely it's a small effort to put a nice fuse box in it. If you ever blow a fuse it's a lot easier to find if all the fuses are nicely lined up instead of being hidden somewhere in a wire spaghetti.
Definitely agree with this!
Inline fuses are a quick option when adding an extra light like a beacon light etc. When doing a proper wiring job, use a fuse box!
