My battery is in the front stock locationI would hardwire directly to the battery. Make sure you have the correct wire to the positive side so the end of the plug doesnt have the bare metal terminal.
Tyrap the wire so it is not flopping around. Where is the battery, in the front or trunk? I have my battery in the trunk and I plug mine it from under the car.
Interesting. Did you run the power cord through a bulkhead fitting / grommet? Or do you have to open the trunk to plug in the battery tender?
One of the reasons we did it like this is if the battery goes dead we can charge it from under the car. The trunk panels cover everything in the trunk.I put the charging post in the trunk floor by the tail lights. Then I have my small pigtail under the car hanging. Then I just reach up under the car and plug it in. Trunk stays closed.
Here is the bulkhead connectors I put in the trunk floor. A cover goes over the tail lights and covers it.
Here is where the battery is mounted. And I didnt use the Rod Door panels.
