Alright. Here is a different one. Post your battery pics showing the cabling etc... Who has the cleanest looking battery? The best looking terminals? The best looking wiring?
Seeing that I love good wiring connections so much, I thought I'd see.

Here is a pretty useless pic of mine. Hard to see. My camera broke and I am getting a new one next week so I will need to wait until I get it to take a closer pic.

If anyone can guess what is wrong with my battery in the picture below, you would be pretty smart. :whistling

Go on! Post your VB-VK battery pics! :D

Well here is my battery pic, complete with 1g cabling, duel pole isolator switch, gold plated battery terminals the positive just happened to have a voltage guage on it.
I fabricated up the mounts to snuggly fit my new optima yellow top. The 750cca turns the 5L over beautifully.

cheers
Scott

Lol I long overkill and over engineering, it just so happens the battery install is only 2 weeks old, I ran out of room in the engine bay for the battery so it ended up in the boot. I didnt plan on using gold connectors, its just the only ones I could fit my cable into properly without using lugs & fitted the battery terminals the optima seems ot have a bit smaller positive terminal than most.

Hey Scott,

I have pretty much the same terminals.

They are Jaycar terminals.
