As with any wiring project take your time and use all of the normal precautions; appropriate size wire, rubber grommets or similar when running wires through metal, and fuses where needed. If you are worried about shorting something, double check your wiring with a test light or meter before you terminate the wire. You shouldn’t have any problems.
