Yea... lesson learned. and install rubber thing over the cable mount. if something falls on it, it is so close to the FW that it will likely also cause sparks.

Here’s my build log pic. I used -3 stainless bolts with nut plates behind the FW for easy battery box removal. No need for a bunch of extra beef on the FW. The battery is so light that it’s not an issue. BTW the battery can be rotated 90* if you want the terminals reversed. Great idea by earthX. Good luck!
