Grounding Wire installation

Hey guys, feel pretty noob asking this but, I searched the forums and on google and wasn't able to find any help. I bought grounding wires, but didn't get instructions with it on how to install it - so if someone could post some instructions or send me a link to somewhere with instructions that would really help. Its a universal kit for the Nissan Altima. I went to the Nissan dealership and they said they didn't know how to do it without instructions...so yeah any help would be appreciated - thanks

Is this an easy task for a noob? I can only wash my car and change a tire, haha. I'm nervous working around the engine, but would like to get the AT grounding kit.

if you want to save yourself the $$$ go to a car audio store and buy the gold connectors and the 8 gauge wire and make the grounding kit yourself. you will pay about 15$ for the wire and about 25$ for the connectors.
