Well done Donny - what thickness of cable did you use - remember it may need to carry up to 50 amps plus especially when the starter is fired up - poor earth supply can lead to a starter geting overloaded and burning out - most decent motor factors sell heavy duty earth cables of varying length and the longer the cable - the thicker it needs to be.
