Alternator wiring mod, my way

So I finally got around to doing the alternator wiring mod on my blue car, but I have a real difficult time keeping things simple and straightforward. So somehow, the battery ended up in the trunk.

Megafuse holder and fuse from
1/0 gauge wire from knukonceptz (the CCA, not full copper)
(I ordered 25 feet, but used less than 20. Not sure exactly how much though, I forgot to measure it.)
6 1/0 gauge ring terminals, also from knukonceptz
a bunch more of the 4 gauge ring terminals
Some 4 gauge wire that was laying around
Some fresh battery terminals from advance
Lots of electrical tape

If I were to do this again, I would use 2 gauge full copper instead, since the wire would be a lot easier to work with and the 2 gauge from Knukonceptz is bigger than most 2 gauge. 1/0 gauge is huge, plus it weighs less. 1/0 is the way to go to play it safe though.

Pictures will explain better than words ever could:

There are more pics here.
