Glenn, I'm watching your thread with interest. I really like how you fabbed the copper bus bar and used socket head bolts. The copper bus bar that PL used on the 700 I'm building is less substantial and thinner than the ones they used on the older 400s I WOPLed. I'm watching and going to copy some of your ideas!

So I just gave enough in the photo that can yield many other tit bits. Look hard everyone

Aluminum works just as well...

View attachment 57284
Aluminum may be a better choice than copper with respect to any galvanic reaction to the power cap connections. I’m with George the copper is not only BASS but has some bling

I always use SS lock washers between them. Not sure how well silver plated washers stop electrolysis. I build some ocean going Aluminum fire boats for the Mexican offshore oil field. We always used SS fasteners along with a gasket or insulating beading compound. These were ships mind you floating in a salt water sea- lots of electrons moving there.
