Yeah thats what I thought that it needed to be installed, but thought maybe u heard them already...I haven't tried them yet. I'm in the process of installing the stereo now. Then there is tuning. It could be a month before I'm ready to do an evaluation between these and the Dyns...
Thanks about the install work. I try
Maybe on the final version you should score the underside with a razor along your fold line. Also heat it a little slower. Do you think quenching it in water after would help with the cooling deformity? Have you consider 3m double side tape and just attaching it to the wall in the battery well? Some of that stuff is unbelievably strong! Just some thoughts. Keep up the good work!Ok. Not a complete work but will reveal my idea:
1/4" HDPE is thick enough to tap for light duty loads. I plan to bolt the fuse holder in like this:
Use small self taping screws to fix fuse bracket to this plastic battery well cover. The lid still closes with a 1/4" sheet inserted:
This is what the assembly would look like prior to putting back into palce in the car.
My concern is that only plastic and a few screws would be holding a high amperage fuse holder in place. It should be strong enough. But, I would feel much better about a stronger mechanical bond. However, I don't think I can just screw into sheet metal here. Any other solution allowing me to secure into sheet metal would be much further from the battery. Then I would have a longer unprotected / unfused run of power wire leading from the battery.
The best solution would be to tack weld a bracket for the fuse holder close to the battery if possible. Right around the same area I plan to mount it to plastic. But, I don't have that skill.
Advice? If none I will just go the plastic route tomorrow to have "something" in place.
Not in all circumstances. Watch this video from Mark at CAF. He does not recommend crimping power wires due to the type of terminal used.You are suppose to crimp the ferrules before connecting them...
