Hey everyone,

So today I got around to doing my Big 3. I did it all my 1/0 AWG Kicker Hyperflex. Let me know what you think:

This reading is with the car off (no alt)

I left some of the stock wires on but I figured it doesnt matter because the electricity will take the path of least resistance. The only thing I was wondering about was if it mattered if the new wires were above the old wires on the battery terminals, should I have the 0 AWG as the first ring terminals sitting on the battery terminals or does it not matter?

Also how could I test that my big 3 is working? I tested the resistance of my ground spots to my battery negative and it gives the same reading as when I touch the two ends of the DMM together (0.05 Ohms) So I know they are good, any other tests I could do to?

What do you guys think?

Clean your chassis to ground, looks really rusty on the engine..

Besides that looks good.

I sanded it down completely underneath the ring terminal, it only looks rusty around, where it makes contact its shiny bare metal.

What about these questions?

Spray paint the places you sanded down... Don't want holes in the sheet metal. Rust FTL.

Yeah I was about to go do that, should I prime it and then spray it or just put like 2 coats of spray? I'm gonna cover up the ring terminals and wire with tape before I spray.

A light coat of primer would help
