    Should I wait on the cutters?

    I ordered a Large Gauge cutter from parts expess the other day...its coming in Monday...hopefully ill get the wiring harness for my alt today...i dont know yet im at school right now...so the question is should i go ahead and do the big 3 tommorrow without them(i have some cutters and a hacksaw) or should i wait until the cutter gets here to do it...would it be worth it...because id have to wait till next weekend to do it then........

    Do it today if you can. Use tree pruners or something.
    I just use bolt cutters, works like a charm.

    i do the same thing zach does. tree pruners\bolt cutters slice through that wire like nothing.

    but i wouldnt do it witha hacksaw myself. that would get messy and freyed i would think.

    i also use a hack saw and it works great. it takes longer to cut the wire and you can't use it in tight spaces but if you pre measure your wire a hack saw will work fine.

    I use one of those coaxial cable strippers, like what the DSS install guys use to quickly strip RG-8 and RG-6 coaxial cable. Once the jacket is off, I use a pair of scissors. Gets a lot of little copper strands everywhere, but makes a very accurate cut.
