hmm... Set on ground, unzip pants, pee onto but try not to get it inside the screw holes, Charge by plugging into house wall socket, then sell on ebay to some suspecting Feg.

Did i help?

Start by getting rid of it. Do the big 3, evaluate... upgrade battery/alty if needed.

Heres how I install a cap: First, I charge it by hooking the positive and negative to the battery respectively. Then, I run a wire from the positive to my right nut, from the negative to my left nut (preforably with alligator clamps on teh sack). Finally, I jump in the shower.

i wouldnt use a cap, i would sell it for money to buy wire for the big 3. but if your set on it, first off if it comes with a resistor then you will have to charge it. to do that you will hold one end of the resitor on the power wire and the other end on the power terminal to charge it up, then you will just run positive from battery to cap positive, and then ground the other terminal, then just run the wire from your amp to the cap. you dont have to run your ground to the cap just your positive wire.
