I'm a GIRL!

I recently upgraded my big three.
I used expandable braided sleeving and heat shrink That I got from a seller on ebay named Fuzzyletters. I used 1/2 inch but I would recommend 3/4 for 0 Gauge. The Battery Terminals are Stinger and also purchased from ebay. Wire terminals are from Happy Terminals I got the 1/2 inch ones.

Wires all wrapped and ready to go. I used less than 6 feet of 0 Gauge.

How did you go about crimping those terminals? i gave it a shot not too long ago, to crimp some similar terminals on some 4ga cable, and I failed miserably. LOL. any tips/pointers?

I was gonna solder... and that's probably the best way. But I used a small vise that I got a Home Depot.

yea those are nice to have buti use a bench vice, put the wire in the terminal, close the vice on ONE SIDE of the ring(theres a split down the middle) then squeeze the terminal so the other side is over the crimped side and then crimp it down again. If you want you can also put say a rock or something small and hard in the vice and clamp it down with that so you can basically do the same thing as what that hammer on one does... and FYI it takes FOREVER to actually penatrate 0gauge wire with solder correctly... solder gun ftw!
