    And yes, by "clamp" I did mean sticking the terminal between the plates. Everything is a mess under there now but I'm going to take a wire brush and a grinder once I get going at it. Only issue with doing B is going to be protecting the wire. I'm, uhh, missing 80% of my underside plastics. You know of any particularly weather/erosion proof heat shrink?
    the ground close to the alternator will be much better imo

    while you're in there clean up your factory grounds, its a necessary thing no one does

    can you use that stud you're pointing to with 'alt' as your ground?

    Yes. I was planning on using "Alt" as the first connection. And yeah, I was gonna scrub everything down. It's already been doused in battery cleaner a couple times and I was going to go ahead and pull off the stock connection and do a little sanding under it.

    you mentioned the wire missing its casing earlier, tbh i wouldnt even use that wiring unless you're referring to stock wiring. in that case i like felt tape, seems like it holds up well. you can tape it then wire loom it

    Are you talking about when I said I was missing my plastics? By "plastics" I meant all of the underside plastic on the car that protects the engine bay from spray and whatnot. Due to the ****** alternator location and the lack of plastics it's going to be really exposed to the elements. I was asking if anyone knew of some really durable heat shrink.

    oh i see what you're saying, regular heatshrink is fine just tape it up as well. i wouldnt run cheap cca wire under the hood at all, ofc is fine it usually has a good casing and corrosion resistance

    It's 2/0 Flex-a-Prene welding cable. It has a pretty sturdy casing on it, I'm just a bit paranoid. With a run that short I should be able to get enough tape on it to ease my mind.

    Those Raptor terminals I bought off of you look nice by the way. You wouldn't happen to have a box of fuse holders laying around too, would ya?

    something like that you're usually better off getting on amazon. i like this type, they're usually less than $10:http://www.amazon.com/DS18-FHSANL200...7DMFNSH7B6XMR5

    Yeah, I was joking around a bit. I've got a couple of DB link holders sitting in my amazon cart right now. One vanished on me and I also miscounted a by a fuse doing my write up. I always forget something along the way. Thanks for your help man.
