I got a chance to finally start on making some decent "fancy" cabling for the car.

I made 5 shorty battery interconnect cables using 2/0 welding cable that was donated to the project from a friend in the construction trades.

I borrowed a very nice big ole crimper. No home-brew on this one!

I cut the cables to length, put a terminal on, crimped it, and heat shrinked the terminal.

I installed a couple of them in the car.

I still need more terminals (I bought all they had at the store!) and more cable boots, but it's STARTING to look like a real car!
