After owning a yellow top for 5 months and it sitting in my garage i finally got round to fitting it today but it wasn't without its trials namely its much bigger and doesn't fit with the hard pipes installed!

I prefer to do things in a way that it can be reversed should the need arise so the next issue was what to do with this

Here's how i overcome both issues, i tunr the battery 90 degrees but had to trim the sides of the battery tray to do so

Then i customised a a box i bought from maplin

And refitted the positive distribution inside it

Tucked it under the support bar and earthed it to an existing earth point but will find a better chassis point tomorrow

It's only a bit of vibration and movement what's the worst that could happen :handsup:

The cable insulation could wear with the movement eventually and have nasty consequences. Why take the risk?

Yep I know I always try and leave at least 10mm from the engine and pipework or any thing that could move about. That looks like it's squashed between the battery and inlet pipe
