Subject:      Battery Under Back Seat
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I am thinking about installing a battery under the rear seat by simply running a heavy wire to the starter (which would in turn connect it to the existing battery) and grounding to engine or chassis. Would I need fusible link/fuse on this wire? What gauge wire? I realize this will only give me additional power when cranking or with ignition switch on. This setup seems too easy--am I missing something? Jay
