Added Aux start button

I just added a second start button. This is below right next to the engine compartment and already has come in handy for winterizing. It is wired so you can turn the engine over without the ignition being on. I have had the "extra" solenoid for some time, it helps with the long run back to the starter button that is subjected to rain and salt spray.

Is there a reason you didn't run the aux. start switch leg to the + side of the extra solenoid? Complete bypass in the event of solenoid failure?
