Pics of my 3G Alternator Install

This week my nice new battery terminals showed up, along with my heavy-duty ring terminals, etc. I used 4 gauge amp wire for a replacement, even replaced the short wire going to the starter solenoid. Of course, I had to use red amp wire for the positive side. I haven't replaced the negative side wires yet, but will. I think it turned out really nice and clean. FYI, there is some extra length going to the alternator so I can put my fuse holder inline.

I get a big smile when i see pics of your engine because that is the color mine is done in. This is my mutant 3g 150amp alternator. I have way too much time invested in that part.
