Brief Description:  Shunt wire to buss terminal and to master relay

Installed the two cotter pins in the two lower lord mounts bolts

Installed a #8 ring terminal to the main wire feed from the switch buss to the shunt on firewall. I first clocked the wire and terminal so I wouldnt need to twist wire to fit on lug. I then slid a rubber boot on the wire and 2 pieces of shrink tube and slid well clear. I then used my handy dandy water pump pliers to crimp the terminal. Thanks Steve!! Then I used my torch to heat terminal and wicked in plent of solder trying not to melt the wire insulation. Some melting did result but....
I slid shrink tube pieces in to position and heated. Connected the wire to the shunt. I will need to support this wire with a clamp later.

I cut a length of #8 wire to go from opposite terminal on shunt to the master relay that is mounted on the battery box. I used a number 6 ringterminal as that is all I have. Crimp and solder as before. Temp install but I need another boot. I will see if I can get any ring terminals and boots at autozone and if not will need to order.
