Battery relocation, firewall pics?

I'm still in the planning/aquiring parts phase of relocating my battery to the trunk , and wanted to see if anyone has pics of where and how they passed the power wire to the starter through the firewall.

If you made it through that run on sentence, and have any pics, I would appreciate it.

Re: Battery relocation, firewall pics?

Mine is in the trunk but my cable goes through the floor of the trunk, and along the frame to the engine compartment. Sounds like you are wanting to run the cable through the interior of the car?

Yes, the interior is out right now, so it's a pretty simple run. I'll run the power and charge wires down the wiring channel on the passenger side.

Re: Battery relocation, firewall pics?

I originally bought the bulkhead connector Dave linked, and of course I drilled a hole through the floor and installed it, and then of course I changed my mind, so I cut a plug and welded the hole back up. the place I ultimately chose was just slightly too small for that bigger connector, so I bought one of these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-3-8-Stud...item519e0a2874

did away with this one....



....and installed this one....





happy with it.

Re: Battery relocation, firewall pics?

Brent, we ran ours in the wiring channel, along bottom of kick panel. across the floor pan, and came out of floor pan behind the starter. We ran it solid and used a gromet on the cable where it passed through the floor pan. We ran it on top of the ledge on the floor pan. After sound deadner, carpet insulation, and carpet went down you can't feel it or tell where it's at. We ran the cable in air line that is used in large trucks, works good. Then we used tape insulation on the cable after it came out of the firewall.

Might be a good idea to use a Ford solenoid in the trunk so the cable is only hot during cranking ?

Thanks, I have already ordered one from MAD, just waiting on delivery. I also have the bulkhead connectors from Summit that Dave posted above.
