Changing Car Battery Cables / Kill Switch Install
I've got an old car. (Love the ol' gal) and I've decided to change the battery cables since they're starting to corrode and get ugly. Completely replacing it, as well as the terminals that clip to the battery poles.
Anyhow, I've also come up with the idea of installing a Kill Switch, something like this.
So basically after replacing all the cables, I was thinking of attaching this Kill Switch somewhere along the Negative line from the Battery and attaching it in a nice hidden place.
My Question is, since I'm tight for cash.. Can I buy Car Jumper Cables, something like 150amp(Should I go higher?) cut off the clamps, and use the cable itself as my new battery cable. Use it to connect to the Kill Switch and bolt the end of the cable somewhere else to my Frame?
My Battery is:
Cold Crank: 800
I also ask, will adding roughly 2 meters more length of battery cable change the effectiveness of my battery's performance to start the car?
Basically in short: Can Jumper Leads be used as Battery Cable?
Is this a good question?
