I've been thinking about this as well. I used irrigation pipe to armor my 1/0, but with slight frame and body flex and not being able to see quite all the cable, the thought of the body coming into contact with the hot side is... I don't wanna think about it.

I have fuses in a box when I get the time to install. Probably after hunting.

OFTEN ignored. Excellent grounding solves lots of problems... from headgaskets to rust (in the case of a friend's truck at least - weird!), as well as strange electronic behavior. It's like voodoo or possession or something. We operate in some pretty galvanic environments I think. I have seen STRANGE things (and no, not just as a miscreant teenager...).
