Love the fab work and use of space NZeder! My concern would be that annoying seep of oil that catch cans have eventually covering the battery.

As far as mounting the battery in the back of the vehicle, a large wire from battery +ve to starter and large wire to body then large wire from body to engine should suffice.  Large wire needed because of the voltage drop experienced, especially whilst cranking the engine.

Securely mount the battery and then cover it to prevent cargo causing issues ie. something metal touching exposed terminals and letting the smoke out. Everyone knows that electrical systems can't function without the smoke secured inside.

I only ask because I had already stated I run a dry cell, and the Isolator is a big yes. May as well make all the improvements I can while doing this tidy up.
