Default Hatz Z790 DIY glow plug controller

Has anyone built their own glow plug controller? I don't want to hook the glow plugs up directly to the battery through a switch or relay. There needs to be a current limiter but I have never used them before. Any ideas on what to do there?

I had the same question but I ended up putting a momentary switch after a 30 amp fuse coming from the battery then connected to an aftermarket Kubota style heat indicator. When the indicator coil turns red, release the momentary switch and fire the engine.
