Default Doing the Big 3 Upgrade......

I've already replaced the battery to chassis, but I don't want to mess with the alternator to positive and the engine ground to chassis untill I know exactly what im doing. Anyone have any pictures of both ends of the wires im replacing?

Alternator Wire:

Battery to chassis wire:

My alt-battery wire is fused only because I didn't have enough wire and that fuse holder made it the perfect length. If you look closely in the first picture you can see a few inches of my chassis-engine block ground. Most people don't use the stock location but I didn't want a bright red wire sticking out so I took the time and ran it to where the stock one goes. It's just a piece of wire with a terminal on each end. Nothing to really screw up.
