Battery relocation
So went to a scrapy and bagged myself two merc battery cables for £5
[Image: 20ddfa9890b9cc8d5aced26e611b57d4.jpg]
The cables the thickness of my finger and one come off a turbo diesel estate and the other a 6 cylinder petrol estate (same cable).
Will these be man enough for a relocation and whats the best way to run a setup?
Earth to the body ...or... an earth ran from the bay aswell as the posi

If its the size of your finger, ts probably big enough but can you measure the diameter of the copper?
Run the power line (carefully) from a proper joint box to the new battery location then earth the battery with a cable the same size as the positive to as close to the battery to a clean (bare metal) and secure place.
You will also need to run an earth cable from the engine block to the body otherwise the car won't start.
