    side-post terminals

    long time lurker around here and i finally came up with something that i couldnt find by searching. anyway, i am beginning the process of installing the system that i had to tear out of my old civic into my recently acquired 1999 saturn sl1 (with upgrades of course ). as anxious as i am, waiting on the wiring harness and dash kit for my HU still, i decided this morning that i would start upgrading the big three. i was quite dissapointed to discover the **** side post gm battery terminals, as i have a pair of the knu aftermarket terminals that i had in my civic.

    my question lies here: in order to avois scrapping the knu terminals, which i like very much, does anyone know if it's possible to purchase screw in posts, as in the type generally found on top-mount batteries, that my knu terminals could fit over, and where to find them?

    excuse me if this an aweful question and thanks for the help.
