The circled part is the guys power wire. Took the picture outside of a parts store right after he was messing with the battery connection View attachment 40062
😳😂. Man, I can’t lie. I did an install like that once but it was in my rookie days. I knew nothing about running wires through the firewall. 😩

I’ve seen this more than once before lol. Doing a system is fun until you gotta get past that firewall.

I shorted a power wire once on my Explorer’s front left rim when running my battery to fuse holder wire. That sure was surprising 😳

I’m genuinely curious if anyone else has ever managed to short a 0 gauge wire out on their actual wheel? Haha 👀

Can’t say I’ve experienced that before,lol. But, I did fry a ground that was the size of angel hair spaghetti. It was grounded in my door jam to the back trunk. My Oldsmobile cutlass deserved better😩😁

I had my amps stolen when I was still in high school, and I had my 4 channel power wire short on a seat bracket when I was trying to hurry getting ready for school. Dude, it was a lot of sparks. A lot, very loud crackling, like fire right above my carpet 🥲

I may have shorted a wrench one time installing a power wire on an alternator…lol. Shit happens. Don’t drop a wrench while tightening a live power wire onto your alt. Haha I made a wrench spark off a motor block haha. When I say spark, I mean a water fountain of sparks 🥴

The good ole teenage years LOL.
