I did mine on the cheap but properly. I picked up three Autozone battery cables (With side post lugs for GM) for around $5/pop. $2.49 was spent for two 2ga copper lugs, and I crimped and soldered them on where I had to cut to length. (Buy larger, measure, cut to fit) $1.50 for each box of 10ct. 1/4" star washers and self-tapping sheet metal screws.
I would figure in your case a shop will heap on a hefty labor charge even if you brought the parts.

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."
