If you are on a budget, you can buy a boat battery box from sears for about $10 bucks. Then go to a junkyard and pull the rear mounted battery cable from a Fiat. Most of the kits use welding cable. PepBoys catalog has a nice battery rear mount kit with red cable for about $70. You can run the cable from the starter following the master cylinder brake lines down the left subframe area following the bottom edge than across rear surfacing just above the differential. Use tie wraps to secure the battery cable to the brake driver sides line about every foot the entire way. Also, use a grommet where it enters the trunk area. The Ireland kit is basically welding cable and a cast aluminum battery tray. The TopEnd kit is an integral brace with battery frame using welding cable also.
