02 SVT - Trying to Install new Battery terminal cables

I got a 02 SVT and the battery cables are messed up for an unknown reason (bought the car that way) and i purchased some new ones but cant figure out how to install them, anyone got a tip or two?
Any help would go a long way at this point.

I THINK that on the SVT there are two major positive cables,, one goes to the alternator, the other goes to the starter.
I THINK on the regular Focus big postive cable goes to alternator then to the starter.

But before pulling any cables off, label everything and make a 'map' or else you will be SOL
