I was going to use a side post battery. When I install the battery, I will have to shove it in place and clear the metal ledge just above the battery. A top post would increase the height and I do not have much room.Very cool write up TP
I am a big fan of "bigger than stock" size battery cables be it front or rear mounted battery.
IDK what battery you will be using but I went with a 78 series side post only battery. I prefer the look and attachment of side post cables vs top clamp type.
AHA! Now I understand the comment in my thread. :grin2:
Thanks for reading it. I am convinced that about 4 people read this thread. Maybe now I am up to five.Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to document your build. I was having a tough time deciding on on how to route my Vintage Air hoses, I am at least now pointed in a direction and have a plan. Great photographs and explanations made it easy to see how the bulkhead connector would be a better option for me. Ordered it last week, got the holes drilled and progress is being made instead of staring at the thing.
Do you think my bonding plate is cute?You are clearly in your element. Is this the most fun part of the project for you?
I got my 2 gauge cable and terminals from Napa. I did the crimp & solder method.
You could have gotten away with your standard ER70S MIG wire on the stainless bolt and carbon plate. The way you did it is absolutely 100% correct, but if you’re after one little weld you can get away with it versus buying and changing out a spool of wire just for that. If you control your heat there’ll be no problems with cracking, it’s done all the time at work. It really isn’t as difficult and crack as easy as google searches make it seem.
I just remembered you ran conduit in your car. It would have bugged you. Never mind. :wink2:
It is cute and dainty.Cute might not be the adjective. Tidy? Slick?
How long did you stare at it admiring your work when you were done? :grin2: That is the true test. I've been known to participate in such testing from time to time.
