Question battery relocation/jumper terminals

hey guys im relocating the battery to the spare tire well and the battery will then have plywood with hardflooring overtop of it making the battery a pain to access if i need to jump it . i decided to get the taylor jumper terminals so it would be alot easier to jump the car if need be.

my question is whats the best place to mount the jumper terminals?
i thought about the firewall in the engine bay but then i would have to run a power wire back to the front agian wouldnt i? or could i run a power wire from the altenator/starter?

then i though about mounting them under the car under the battery?

i dont want to mount them anywhere in sight (ie. rear bumper)

thanks for the help guys
