Battery Cables?

Ok my battery cables are old and in bad shape, ive gone to Advanced and Auto Zone they all have the right lenght but all of them dont have the second cable.

Anyone know a website that sells T-Bird Cables?

Also looked into just replacing the heads of the cables but none of them looked to have enough room to fit both of the wires.

when my negative battery cable end was cracking i cut it off and put one of these on it

both wires fit perfectly in it. I thought it looked too small but after putting it on it's a perfect fit.

I really didn't want to have a connection like that for my main terminal on my Mark VIII so I bought the pre-terminated cable and used it just for the main wire. For the second wire I stripped it and used a side post connection and put it there.

So it is not ideal because I have two ground connections on my battery and you have to have a dual terminal battery to use it. But I think it looks much nicer then the generic universal connection and I think it's a better connection.
