Thanks for the help so far. (MT Audio have you been drinking?? lol)

I just wanted a rough guide so I can go and purchase all the bits needed tbh. What cable/s to buy, what crimpers to buy, what connectors etc etc.

Are you planning on putting a terminal in the engine bay so you still have a point to jump start if needed? Also makes it much easier as you only have 1 wired to thread into the cabin rather than a few.

My plan was to run one wire from the terminal that is currently in the engine bay (and will remain there, just hidden) to the battery which will be under the passenger seat. And earth it to the centre tunnel.

Someone please correct me If I am wrong.
 
Pm sent.

Can see mine here,

Cheers Ben, I got your pm too.

Thats the sort f thing I was hoping to do. Bit of a dumb question, but If i'm earthing the battery to the floor under the seat why would I need 3-4 meters of Black cable? :S
 
I ended up with to much, so yeh, that was a mistake :eek:

Got some left in the garage, and the eyelets to, i bought to much :)

Edit, you can see how long the earth need to be, about 40 cm's


You will need probably 2 x 8mm eyelet, 1 for the positive to the junction and one for the end of the negative to mount to the chassis, and 2 x 6mm for the end of the negative and postivie to the battery.
