Split-Charge System

Hey guys

I got a MK2 golf and I was wondering if anyone could give me guidance in putting in a second battery.

Its a bit different to your usual split charge systems because I have a lot ICE and i need to be able to power all of that when the car is on (at the mo i have a big alternator to deal with that but im afraid it is overcharging the battery).

Also, the second battery can only go in the front because the boot is not ventilated and all the connections for the ICE is already at the front.

So, can anyone help me out? If so, i'll go out and get some pics. Gotta try and find a way of getting in a battery tray for the second battery and general advice.
