How close is your fuse to the battery? When I had my amp in the back along with the battery I had a separate fuse for the battery then a separate fuse for the amp.

You want the fuse to be as close to the battery as possible. That way if anything happens to the battery cable the power will stop right at its source. I have mine maybe 6 inches away from the battery and it is inside the battery box.

Dont forget about putting in grommets on the box where you have cables running in and out.

My battery box came with grommets and I'm not using a fuse for the battery I'm using a circuit breaker instead. ill have the fuse on the amp though. Both the fuse and circuit breaker will be less than a foot from the battery.

It's slow progress since I'm gonna be moving, but I will have it ready by summer.

I will post up a more detailed wiring diagram as I move along so as to help others that may be wanting to do this aswell.

OK so I'm moved but hours are still down at work so we will see how long this takes. On the bright side once I get my tax return back I am buying new skunk2 upper control arms with ball joints and a energy suspension polturethane bushing master kit.

You didn't have it secured? Didn't have it in a box?

I didn't have it hooked up yet. I honestly forgot it was in the hatch, but it's all good my carpet was in bad shape anyways. I did get a nice sore hand tho from dealing with acid bare handed. I gutted the back of its carpet since it's soaked and I may just say screw it and get a agm type battery instead.

Well the back location will be put on back burner as I've lost my job, but in the meantime I've got a box of koni yellows and I'm waiting on my tein h tech springs to arrive.

Still no progress as I'm job searching, but once I'm stable I'll be restarting my work to get the back done. Also I'm needing the shift linkage pice that has the u joint on the end since it snapped off of my shifter. They are not easy to find.

So an update. The shifter has been fixed but more importantly I now have a job. So once I start getting paid I'll be able to restart my work on the relocation of the battery. The other problem is how to attach the steel plate in the back of the car. I'm not too sure if it'd be a good idea to bolt it down to the chassis or if I should weld it.
