Where to get 2/0 gauge wire?

I'm looking to relocate the battery to the trunk and want to do a decent job and I want 2/0 gauge cable from the battery to the engine - both on positive and negative. I can't find it anywhere apart from one place on ebay that will only supply in weird lengths for boats - the one I may get if I can't get it anywhere else is a 10ft length - that should bring me to the engine bay correct?

Any advice on length or where I can get the cable is appreciated.

I think it's amazon not recognizing 2/0 and won't give me 00 either.

Thanks all

Thats what I did. Went to a welding shop and I think they call it lead line, either way it's the line from the welder to the clamps they use. It was pretty cheap and you can get whatever length you want. Went to NAPA and had them clamp on the right ends that I needed. Worked great.

Thanks - hadn't thought of welding supply places - only audio and jumper cables. So I'm going to buy 10 ft of red and 12 of black.

When you run the earth to the engine bay do you go straight to the block then run the other earths from there - or to a patch box?

If they have aluminum wire line get that, it will be more expensive but about half the weight.
