Question to the cavalier or other unibody owners....

i drive a 2000 Chevy Cavalier (4 door if it matters too much) and i was wondering where a good place to run extra wire would be? 1/0 welding cable/wire. i have one run under the trim panel for the doors (front and back doors) and under my back seat etc etc. i was wondering if i could get abnother run under there? or if its a good idea, i wanna hook up a second battery, but idk yet seeing as how i only have the positive wire going back to my amp....oh, and some good, safe grounds without mutilating my daily driver :P and i also dnt have a lot of time to do it all at once, so if it can be split up or something, thats be amazing! Any input/advice is apreaciated.

Thanks,

Alex

I don't own my Cavy anymore but I'd just run it under the car. There's not to much free space for concealment on the inside lol

U can use the rear seat belt anchor bolts as grounds just make sure u grind away all paint, top anchor points should be accessable threw trunk and lower ones r under rear seat

Under fusebox is a gromet to get to inside under dash pull wire through. Remove front seat as well as trim panel. Remove back seat as well as trim panel. Run from under dash,under carpet, inbetween seat bolts, under back carpet, under backseat. It all in taking the seat out. I put 2 cadence amps in a 2000 for my brother. Don't know if it is the same for a 2004 or not.

I could never run it under the car. To afraid of rust, as well as wire wear. These amish roads out here are gravel.
