Can't help with wire gauges but last time I needed to do a bit of wiring I went to a car wrecker and got a good hunk of a wiring harness , lemme tell ya from someone who has made a few harnesses .......it ain't never as easy as you might think....and with that in mind ,make sure you buy enough stuff to make 2 and when cutting to length be generous ....you can cut a bit off but you can't cut a bit on
you gotta make the most out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on.
I would probably look at the fuses the circuits come from as a guide to amperage, then double the rating for a safety margin? Other than that, wattage divided by volts of whatever you`re powering will give you current. (so 60w bulb /12 = 5A, hence the 8A fuse) There will be tables on the net giving current/awg.
