    since my car sits alot i've notice my battery terminals get that flakey corrosive stuff more often.

    and i was wondering if gold plated battery wire ends would help the situation? can anyone shed some light on this?

    thanks

    it wouldnt do it as bad but it sill does it, i know the stock terminals are garbage get rid of them if you still have them. any plated (silver, gold etc) will not corrade as much.
