New Converter Install

I am replacing the breaker box and converter in my 65 Overlander with Progressive Dynamics 'Mighty Mini'. I came across this electrical box underneath the bathroom when I removed the back access panel on the AS. The big red and black wires on top are coming from the battery. The battery was the only thing wired to the old univolt converter. So my question is this: Is this box the connection points of the old converter? and are the connections on the bottom half of the picture using an older type of circuit breaker?

Yes. Those are circuit breakers.

I have the exact same setup in my '65 TradeWind and I'm working on updating/replacing it. The lower 3 little boxes are auto-resetting 30Amp breakers. These are automotive devices.

I will replace these with 30Amp manual reset breakers or an auto type fuse panel so if we do have a short, it has to be reset/replaced. I prefer this over the auto-reset type.

The upper fuses are 40AMP old style glass fuses. I will replace these with manual reset breakers as well. Same type as the 30Amp used above.
