Just for laughs, I stopped by a car install place here, and asked them for a
quote on running the battery power with hot and gnd from the battery, on #8
into the passenger compartment.  He tries to argue that he can pick up hot
and ground under the dash, but I insist that I want it done this way.. They
quote $100 for labor and 3 hours to do the job, then the guy tells me that
he'll just double up #16 wire.  (!!!)  If I want real #8, I had to buy two
amp kits for another $130.
They said it's too expensive to stock wire by the foot.   (for WHO?)

I shudder to think what the job would have looked like.
