    Looks good.... when I did the "Big 3" upgrade i used 2/0 tinned copper shielded marine grade cable and soldered the terminals on and used the marine grade heat shrink that has adhesive inside.

    The bigger cable barely fits through the RVC sensor.

    Anyway... lots of debate on crimping VS soldering. Personally I prefer soldering although crimping is much faster and easier.

    The most important part, IMO, no matter which route you take is heat shrinking the ends, like you did, to keep the moisture from getting in and corroding things.

    Sorry to hijack your thread.... carry on.

    Good job, I am not there yet as far a big 3, just hooking up 2nd battery for now, but definitely shrink tubing the ends is very important, I didn't take a pic of but I also run electrical tape where wire insulation meets terminal.

    Those under mirror cameras are pretty dope. Are they Ibeam as well?

    only the housings, I have change the cameras because Ibeam have IR in them and they were reflecting of side mirror and paint blinding the image.
