    That's just a plain wal-mart marine battery. I have an Optima yellow top and 3 Batcap 2000s for my new install.

    overall, good job. a few comments.

    1. when you sand away paint in an engine bay you will get rust there. it is best to mask off an area the size of the wire terminal to minimize unpainted area. then use an electrical connection grease or silicone to cover the connection area so you don't get rust.

    2. split loom will help add protection to the wires while also maintaining an OEM look. i loom every wire in an engine bay.

    3. the alt positive wire is not fused in your install. note that is a hazard since the alt positive terminal is unprotected. if one metal tool/wrench touches that terminal by accident, the battery will see a short (with very little resistance) which can lead to the battery quickly rupturing. at a minimum, you should get an insulated cover for the alt positive terminal and connector.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Thanks. I'll go back and add the loom and grease. As for number 3, I put the protective cap back on and even zip tied it in place. Since the factory wire wasn't fused I didn't opt to do it but I almost did. I have an extra block, you think I should add one even though the alternator nut is not exposed?

    i fused my alt to batt positive. better safe than sorry. i don't want battery acid in my engine bay. i know i will be safe but i can't say that for a mechanic at my dealership. even still, i've dropped a wrench or socket before and been glad i didn't have exposed positive terminals.
