Source of good extended batt. cables?

I am relocating my battery to under the drivers seat in order to make some room for the Perkins Prima going into my Series coiler soon. Any suggestions for a source or brand of good extended cables to use?

The West Marine near me carries Batt. Cable by the foot. I think Lowes, Home Depot etc. do as well.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

I highly recommend Wrangler Power Products (http://www.wranglernw.com/). I have always gotten electrical components from them and never been disappointed. Call them up, tell the the guage and length and what connectors and they make them up for you with high quality crimps, and heat shrink covered connections. Get their print catalog, you'd be amazed at the little stuff they have to make all your projects nice and professional.

My suggestion is to go to a welding store and have them make you up cables.

Welding cable is much better than any automotive cable. Flexible with oil/water/heat resistant insualtion. Available in any gauge.

I agree. I'm thinking if you can do a diesel engine conversion, making battery cables is well within your skill level. Buy the crimping tool and go for it.
