Default BAT relocation

ok guys im going to place my BAT in the trunk this week... i just need to know that im doing it right.. here is a pic of my current set up... so all i have to do is run the positive line to the trunk and connect it to the BAT. and then just ground the negitive in the trunk right? but then what do i do with the negitive side of the solenoid?

theres no negative side of the solenoid left side is from bat then right side goes to starter.run the left side to the bat and ground in trunk like you said.Make sure to use a larger gauge wire

Bats live in caves.

Batteries live under the hood or in the trunk.

I suggest you also put in a larger engine-to-body ground cable, since the battery will no longer be grounded to the engine.

I see the humor in it as well.

Just a side note. Moving the battery to the trunk is very close to the equivalentof moving your engine back 1".

Just remember that if you go to a drag strip that onforces the rules, they'll prolly want you to have a safety switch on the rear
