No problems in starting your car with the battery in the boot? I thought the longer wire would cause a loss in power at the other end, maybe very minimal i dont know?

take the batterey out
unbolt your battery tray "if rusted to fuck get a new one"

get a good earth wire and bolt it to the car chasis remove all paint and bolt down

go to halfords and get a pos and neg terminal "i got earth wire from there to"

bolt batterey tray to the boot floor i put it in wheel well "removed spare wheel bracket"

then i got the power wire from
http://www.autoeurope.co.uk/

he even fitted the end bits on

run that down the car cut off the pos terminal and join together i cut half the terminal off and used the bolt and hole them taped up and out of way.

the neg terninal i just taped up out of the way

then connect it all up

any holes in boot floor to bolt the baterey tray down i waxoiled afterwards to stop it from rusting

Yeah i agree with Adam-D. Sounds spot on
Jus use some beefy powerful cable for the positive feed to minimise any voltage drop, i'd say at least 4AWG

Would have to be a hell of a fuse as starter needs 100A + when cranking, a breaker would be better IMO. What about fusing/breaking the other end (engine bay) between altenator and battery...

Better weight distribution I guess, I might have to do this soon as my battery tray is snapping off
