battery relocation cable too short

I have an E30 cable kit, and I have installed this into my car. I havent got a battery box yet, but I am planning to buy the combined strut brace/battery holder from TEP. The cable is about the place where the positive on the battery will be, and this cable is not reaching more than 10 cm through the firewall. Should have had 15 cm more to have some more options regarding placing of the junction box. There is a lot of other stuff attached in that same area(brakes, wiring, steering column etc).

IMO the junction box should be placed in the engine bay, but this causes the obvious problems. battery under the seat is not an option.

Anyone have pictures of the placement of this junction box? Are there different sizes on the cables. Was the E30 battery under the seat afterall?

I am routing it on the left side along with the original wiring. It wont be room for it on the other side, going to have the fuel line and its return there.

Hmm, maybe routing it through the luggage compartment wall in the lower left corner will add the extra inches, instead of on top of the wheel well?

....And, you can mount the power disconnect on the brace!
