Default Firewall. ANL fuse and Ammeter Shunt

I ended up with this layout and used 2 pieces of copper .032" making the bus .064". I applied that method for the copper bus between each lug. Once I have everything set up I will put heat shrink tubing on the bus between terminals. I was trying to keep everything neat and clean.

Using the Shunt that came with Garmin and laying it out this way I was told I would be able to monitor the Ammeter current and also the bus voltage on my G3X. If anyone has a G3X and wired their firewall in this manor and has advice or a gotcha please let me know.
