    AutoZone sells nice brass extended side posts. They're not expensive either. Like $8.

    I had a similar, but different problem. Same solution. What they said ^^^ or

    I took a small piece of aluminum flat bar drilled a hole in each end of it, mounted the flat bar to the battery terminal then used a nut and bolt to fasten ring terminals to the other end the flat bar. Copper would be better.
