    If you're good with electrical, it's not that bad. You could install a newer fuse block, or use maxi fuse holders. You could also get replacements which you solder onto the current ends of the existing links.

    Tailgate at your own risk.

    Here's what I did on my 1986 Lebaron convertible. This style PDC was popular on a number of Chrysler cars in the mid-late 90s and early 2000s. It has a number of mega-fuses and a bunch of smaller ones, ASD, starter and two fan relays along with a bunch of smaller relays.

    I'm using this box from mid 2000's volkswagens. You can replace the metal fuse strips.

    I used to have a PDC in my Shelby Lancer. It was part of an under hood harness from a '91 Lebaron GTC I modified at the bulkhead connector to make it work in the SL as a side benefit of converting the car to SBEC. The car is back to having fuse links and now an SMEC harness.
