Battery Relocation Info

I know lots of you guys have done this, but after doing a quick search, didnt find much on it. Someone have a write up on it already? Where did you run the wires, inside the car or outside? I would like to run it inside but was told it could interfere with the radio. Anyone have this problem? How did you run yours? What gauge wire did you use? Ive read to use 1/0 welding wire.

Many threads about this and yes the welding wire is great, it's easier to work into tight spaces, and more flexible than the alternatives. Do a "title only" search and just type in the word "battery"

5driver0 did you run the wire on the inside of the car or the outside?

Now did you run one wire from the battery in the back to the starter solonoid? Or did you run two wires, one from alt to battery and one from battery to soloniod? No kill switch here.

I am running the taylor aluminum battery box trunk relocation kit with the same wiring setup as slo88notch and I have no electrical problems. Plus the aluminum box looks sick back there.

The wire from the alt to solenoid and from battery to solenoid connect to the same terminal on the solenoid correct?
