Help choosing the right DIY parts
This is my first DIY.  I'm hoping that some exerienced mod builders can chime in and share some experience and tips.
 
I have the box, the batteries (AW 18650 1600mah), the charger is on the way, now I need HELP choosing the rest of the parts for my unregulated box mod. 
 
I still need to order:  510 connection  -  Mosfet  -  Fuse  -  Fire button  -  Battery tray  -  Wire
 
I'll be using one battery.  My thought is that under maximum conditions I could run as high as 14 amps, assuming a fresh 4.2v battery and a .5 ohm coil that is actually .3 ohms.
 
Any suggestion on a mofset, and fuse? 
 
I've heard that some battery trays are better than others - any suggestion?  I don't know what guage wire I should purchase.  There are sure a lot of 510 parts out there - how do you know which one to pick? 
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated! 
 
Thanks - Randy

Bob - that site is of great value to me - it's a wonderful site full of everything one could think of for modding.  Great for brainstorming!  Too bad its on the other side of the pond, but the link is very much appreciated.
