Default Keep blowing engine fuse

Well here i am driving along about 10 klms from home when it just dies.Discover the eng fuse is gone(blown)Swap it for another and it blows as soon as i turn on the ignition.
I back tracked what i had done to the car recently and all i have done was fit drawers in the back the day before.
Any ideas?

Something has worn through - the only system you can discount is the starter - trace wires - its a c"@t if a job

Disconnect the battery, - this will ensure that you dont blow the meter.

Put a multi meter between the positive battery terminal and ground and set it to Ohm's or short buzzer.

You will see a very low impedancer ie 0 ohms = short.

Start disconnecting wires until the short dis-appears

Also check all the screws that you put in you may have hit a cable.

Drawers are not screwed in(its a tight fit)
I removed the four tie down points from the rear floor and refitted the screws to fill the holes.Maybe something happened there?
I have zip ability when it comes to elec work so im going to have to get an auto elec on site.
Its going to be hot for the next couple of days and i cant move it undercover so when it cools down i will sus it out to the best of my ability.
