Remember what we said earlier about deciding on part locations? The starter solenoid is just such a situation. Not only did we have to decide if we wanted it under the hood or closer to the battery, but where to mount it for access. We ultimately decided on this upright behind the driver seat, close to the battery. This way, our long battery cable to the starter will only be "hot" when the key is in "start," which is much safer.
