Something I have been working on: I built a small metal box to house a trickle charger and bolted this assembly inside the car frame. It's just behind the battery, nestled inside the X-frame member. . An oval hole there allows me to see the indicator light
on the charger. Power line snakes up just to the side of the running board and the positive and negative leads are attached to the battery terminals. I covered the wires in anti-chafe webbing so that no plastic wires are seen. Now all I have to do is plug in to an extension cord after parking the car. Also, the whole thing can be removed for judging in a matter of 10 minutes, if desired.

Sounds like a neat idea ! Typically when I put a battery tender on one of my cars, I just raise the RH hood panel and connect the - to the startix post and the + to the ground cable from the bell housing to the frame.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
