Looking For Some Help In The DIY Tank Wiring Section

I am wanting (ok needing) to upgrade some wiring for my tanks. I have been using electrical outlet strips and they are just not cutting it anymore. All of the current plugs are full, and on one of the tanks I have even had to run another extension cord for more plugs.
Has anybody made their own wiring set up for their tanks? Or does anybody know of an article or web site where they have done one?
I am looking for a wiring diagram if anybody has one. If you're curious I am looking to put between 6 and 8 dedicated plugs and 6 timed ones.
TIA

PM RLG2182 as he has a simular setup on his tank. You can see images in his Canopy fan thread here in the DIY section.

I have seen a pic of his electrical set up. And yup, that is kind of what I am looking to do.

I was hoping that he was going to see this thread and tell us all his secrets. One more DIY Documentation of sorts.
