Was just curious, thinking about it, the metal bracket holding fuses / live feed to battery on MK4 is not earthed.
Have you got a fuse on the main power feed to your fusebox (i.e. under the bonnet)?
It's all about preventing a fire if you binned it hard.
My Battery is in the boot and I'll be fitting a cube fuse as part of this work. Initially I was going to run the cables through the wing but if someone went into the side of the car and damaged the live cable, I hate to imagine the end result. So, live cable comes out the bulkhead and alongside the chassis leg.
Selecting the right size fuse might be a bit of a pain as the starter sucks allot of juice and I'll have to select a fuse 'weaker' than what the main cable can support. Once the engine is running again I'll see what size fuse is sufficient.
