Re: Battery in trunk
The system Madelectrical.com recommends useing a jumper strap (piece of sheet metal) to jumper to the starter solenoid when the battery cable is powered. If the battery is in the trunk they recommend a 8ga wire to charge the battery from a power distribution point in the engine compartment. When you turn the key it closes the F**d solenoid (also in the trunk), powers the battery cable to the starter which also activates the starter solenoid via the jumper. I would think you could just run the charging wire and starting circuit wire inside the car to the trunk.
