I need help with electrical wiring.

Hi all, I'm new here I love trying to teach myself new things and this is my first post on DIY. I am building a swamp cooler as per the instructable


I would like to wire my pump and fan to use in a regular wall outlet, and plan to at some point modify it for solar use. Here's what I got.

A Bilge pump with a 2 amp fuse 12 volt dc with a red and black wire which I assume will need to be soldered to something.

I am also waiting on a 1984 yahama venture radiator fan motor which I believe is also 12 volts.

Here's the question

What is the best, safest, and most efficient way for a DIY beginner to properly wire these two items to plug into a single electrical outlet?

What parts do I need how should they be assembled?

Sign up for the site, since the instructions on wiring this up are only available that way.

Since the site you are following says it self contained - off grid operation, one way would be to use a deep cycle battery and a battery charger.
