Trunk Mounted Battery, remote solenoid?

I'm aware this question does not relate anything to stock, I'm just wonder if by chance anyone knows.

I rewired my car with an AAW 67-68 Camaro kit, and I mounted the trunk in the Pass side rear. Right now I have a 2 or 1 guage wiring running down the length of the car on the inside, through the firewall to the starter. I was advised a remote solenoid would make this a little more "safe", so I picked up a ford style off Jegs.

Now, my concern is I run the 2 gauge wire to the solenoid, then from the solenoid to the starter. And I reroute the "s" wire (purple in this case) to the trunk on the proper terminal (right one I believe).

But I've also got 2 wires on the actual starter at the moment, that are touching the hot 2 gauge wire. One runs to the Alternator, for charging, and the other runs to the fusebox, which I assume provides power to the interior of the car.

Do these wires also need to be routed to the trunk and put on the "hot" side of the solenoid? If so, are multiple small hot wires better than one large one?
