I ran 35mm cable in through a grommet near the brake booster and through to the boot along the side of the car with the rest of the body wiring.
It will fit...

is 35mm cable ok for cranking and everything else? if so thats awesome because thats what i've got already...
does anyone know how much current the starter would pull while cranking? might have to go put my clamp meter on and check it out...
wouldnt mind shifting the battery to the boot it gets bloody hot up the front...

back seats are peice of piss to remove, give the bottom part a good yank at the front. it has two latches that just pill up, from there your little side bits just unbolt as do ur fold down backrests.
