1994 GT Battery wiring suggetions/opinions

After seeing the condition and how much the starting and charging system had been tampered with I've decided to do all new wiring and relocate the battery to trunk on my 94 GT. I've done some reading up on it and there seems to be several ways to do it, I personally think this is the easiest way but just want to see if this will work ok or if anyone has any suggestions or a better way to go about it. I want to add fuse but not sure exactly where or what size to get. Any help would be appreciated. And sorry for the crappy diagram.

Thanks Indy, since it's from alternator to started then to battery can I just put a 150-175amp fuse near positive post? My alt is 130

As far as ground, you don't think the 1/0 from negative post to chassis then from chassis to block is good enough? I'm just asking since most kits only come with 4ft of 4 gauge wire for the ground side, I figured going with the 1/0 would be more than enough.

Do you think a 4 gauge cable will support a 130 amp load?

Since I have not bought any wire yet would you recommend just doing the 2 gauge instead of the 4?

Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
