I got the notion to install a battery mat so I changed the positive terminal @ the battery & cleaned the postive ground at the junction block. I used steel wool to get the rust off the juction block stud. I also inserted a new washer-[with the points on it;like a star] in -between the one against the car & the wires. The lights would flicker only slightly before & only in gear.I thought I was fixing the problem now they are worse than ever. What did I do & why? What are my next steps? Thnak you in advance.

That terminal is not a positive ground, its just a stud to connect the main power lead to the battery. The terminal bolts to the radiator support, and then the wires go on the stud, then the nut goes on the stud. Do not allow the terminals on the wires to touch the radiator support or you will short out your battery.
