looks to me like its soldered on there get a self taping screw and a ring clamp and attach it so it will not move. i have a feeling that the solder joint will break free after some bumps

Actually, there is no solder yet those are actually screws on there I have two holding the wire in place near the bottom and one in the center above that holds it down and then I have more to hold screws and wire down. This wire is on very strong I could pull as hard as I wanted and it would still be entact.
Later if I do anthing I am going to add solder on top to make better contact. Also a clamp on wire to hold it in place like you said.

Yes I did take the lazy way out LOL
Screws hold down wire and screws on top of screws are to hold the screws below tighter.
Any Suggestions

Do you honestly think that is the proper way to do it?

Designing, building, and shipping boxes. Yahoo IM - kingsuv00If the listening level is too loud, please inform the driver, so he can promptly pull over, and let you out.

not many cars can get me to pluggin my ears but this one.......damn. I mean the first minute is ok but that thing just really starts digging deeper and deeper in your earhole till you cant stand it no more. Seems like it does it with relative ease....16 12's on 8 amps.........gotta love it. :)

if there is no bolt you can use for a ground drill a hole and use a nut and bolt atleast or a seat belt bolt/bumper bolt. atleast you cleaned the paint off.
