Defender relay install

I'm installing a headlight relay and have a question...

There seems to be a terminal block under the drivers seat (see pic). Can I use that as the positive and negative terminals (instead of hooking directly to the battery?). Also, the power cut off switch seems to do so by isolating ground from the battery. But the negative on that same terminal block is hooked directly to the battery - so does it bypass the cut off?

Thanks!

No. But there is some spray paint there I think.

Okay, so if someone comes in later and sees this thread. those posts are apparently split charge wiring posts, with the positive being hooked up to a 60A(?) relay under the hood which can be used to charge a second battery; it only gets power when the engine is running. It's powered by the alternator (so only gets power when the engine is running, not JUST the ignition switch being on.)

I'm considering hooking my relay/lights to this, which ought to (I think :-) ) take care of making the lights shut off when the engine shuts off. It's a little lower-tech than connecting to the ignition relay, but also supports higher amounts of current - which I'm not sure the ignition relay would handle anyways (esp if I put in higher current lights.)
