    Well you need to connect the cap to the battery and the amp then the remote to the cap then the negative to the body and amp so use rings/hoops to make sure nothing falls out of place.

    Easiest way:
    +ve goes from batt(+) to cap(+) & then run another length from cap(+) to amp(+).
    -ve goes from cap(-) to chassis (same grounding point as amp)
    remote lead is also used on some caps, but not all.
    So all you need is some ring type crimps (like you find on amp wiring kits). Often though the cap will coem with the necessary crimps.
