My car/truck thingy :p (2008 Sport Trac)has a funky hookup on the main power. I'm cleaning up some wiring, so I need help.

There is a cable going from B+ to the fuse box about 1 foot away. The fuse box has 2 connections- simple stud posts 3/4" on center. The factory wire has a single ring with 2 holes on it for the connection (proprietary). How can I do this up nice and pretty with 1/0 and beefy connectors (yes, just for looks).


I have an old capacitor buss bar that I could drill some additional holes, the cut/grind to the size I want, using some nice hardware to attach ring terminals. That's the best I've thought up. I'll get some pics up hopefully tomorrow for some visual representation.

pics would help
Yeah, that is a bit ambiguous, huh? If this terminal had 3/4" spacing, it would work perfect (wife is gone with my car, so I can't take a pic right now)
Stinger 0 Gauge Ground Terminal

Maybe that will help a little until I can take a pic. Or, if any of you have done a Big 3 upgrade on a 2006+ Explorer, it should be the same.

You could get one of those Stinger terminals and slot the holes with a dremel to fit your stud centers...

Im sure you could get some copper bar stock an drill your own holes
I have basically that now. Some of these:
MA Audio MLB7 Capacitor Accessories Capacitors Car Accessories and Installation Car Audio and Video - Sonic Electronix
but they came from a Partsexpress buyout. I was thinking of cutting it to the length I need, and drilling holes for the factory posts. Then use a nice ring terminal and nut/bolt (nice plated stuff from a battery terminal) to hold it. This is how I will go unless someone has a better idea between now and probably next weekend.

Oh, no pics right now. It's raining so hard that it sounds like someone is playing double-bass on the roof of my house!
