fox battery relocation help needed

ok so i moved my battery to the trunk area in my 87 hatch, right not i just have a huge gauge wire probbaly 0 gauge running from the solenoid in my fenderwell to my battery, i have ot come to realize this isnt very safe lol so in short terms im looking at this battery box, Taylor Cable 48100 - Taylor Battery Boxes - Overview - SummitRacing.com but the question i have is i want ot run an inline fuse to prevent fire in case of a short, so where can i get a good inline fuse holder that isnt to pricey i found one on ebay for an anl fuse but its form china so id rather not wait os long for it go get here , so my question is what size fuse do i neeed to run and where can i get those inline fuse holders for that style of fuse? any sugeestions are appreciated thanks o and the car is not going to the track so i dont neeed a kill switch

Check your local stereo shop. I have my inline fuse holder in the box with the battery. I have a 60 Amp fuse in mine.

I use a 100A fuse in my alternator lead. Its never tripped. I'm not surprised a 60A could work...
