Always think NEGATIVE (black)

Disconnect first, Re-connect last.

That way you'll never get confused about it.
I just think of the imminent *BANG* if my spanner touches the bodywork when disconnecting the +ve without disconnecting the -ve first!

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
