Post Where can I find the correct battery cables

I have an early `65 GTO that was made in Dec. of `64 so the battery is on the passanger side instead of the drivers side like the rest of the `65s. I need both battery cables but can`t seem to find the correct ones.
Also need a wiper motor wiring harness and switch for the same unit.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

You buy battery cables with ends already installed by length? Measure yours and replace.

Are you looking for exact replacements?

I have cables on there now, but they definatly don`t look correct. I would also like to know where the pos cable got routed. The battery is on the passanger side but the starter is on the drivers side. Right now the pos cable is run down and is wire tied to the sway bar and uses that to run over to the drivers side, I KNOW that`s not right, but where is the right place to route it??
Are there holders suppost to mount to the front of the oil pan or what?

Thanks!
Thier web site sucks for trying to look stuff up!
I just got off the phone with them, the problem is they don`t specify early or late `65 as being diffrent for thw bAttery cables, they just show a `65 GTO, so I`m sure that `65 cable is going to fit the drivers side..
Plus they are out of stock anyway.

hi rukee,

in a situation like yours, i'd buy large-guage wire by the foot and make your own custom power and ground cables.

see the posts in the <a href="http://www.hotrodders.com/cgibin/ubb/17/000654/" target="_blank">"grounding cable types and sizes"</a> topic for ideas and info on specialty wires and connectors suitable for the job.
