Help! Replacing Univolt in '73 Overlander

I have a 73 Overlander. Doing a complete remodel. I'm replacing the Univolt with a PD 9200, Common Block and Fuse Panel. To complicate things, I have the 12 V Onan Generator. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible (do it myself, as opposed to paying someone $800). Has anyone done this and taken pictures? Any advice would be peachy.

Does the univolt have wiring going to the fuses on it or are they in a separate fuse panel? If they're separate this should be very easy.
Disconnect battery and unplug the univolt. Cut the pos and neg cables coming from the univolt, try to keep them as long as you can for slack installing the PD. Take out the univolt. Put the PD 9200 in its place. Strip the ends of the old positive and negative and install into the positive and negative sockets on the PD 9200 and tighten the Allen screws. Plug in the PD 9200 and you're done.

Univolt to PD9200

Thank you for the response. No, the fuse block is built in to the Univolt.Click image for larger version

In the proverbial words of Charlie Brown, Uggggg. Ok still not terribly difficult, but you'll have to replace the fuse block on the univolt with something else if you replace the univolt.
Need a few parts, grit, spit, and a whole lotta duck tape.
Just helped a few guys get through this, take a look through this post; http://www.airforums.com/forums/f37/...ck-135473.html , and this one http://www.airforums.com/forums/f219...er-133233.html. They'll get your mind moving in the right direction.
Good news is that it looks like you've got some room to work with down there, and new converter is much smaller than the univolt.
Think you may recognize the fuse panel in the first post.
