Got a new die hard agm form advance auto. Switched out my battery terminals. Got them from GP car audio. Got everything switched over other than my power wire to my amps. Old terminals were where I slide my wire in and tightened with an Allen wrench verses using ring terminals with these. Old 0 gauge was cca wire. This wire is ofc. I’ll go pick up a cooper terminal tomorrow. I see a difference with voltage. Still going to get another alternator. Waiting in my brother to bring my bucket seats so I can get some measurements to get a box plan into play.

Nice. I like the clamp + setscrew method. Just don't drop a wrench on your batt. ;)

Doesn't hurt to just tape or tape over some sort of cover over the positive (no need for the negative). I've used similar terminals for nearly 5?+ years and I think I only slightly arced once when using a wrench and it was positive terminal to the body due to carelessness. If I was better with 3d models I'd design a cover and print it in ABS or something.

A simpler method would be plasti-dip with a non conductive material draped over the connector. A printed one would probably look better tho.
