Another point of view . . .

You might also take your `job' to the nearest golf course and visit the maintenance department. I am sure that someone there could provide suitable crimps as there are a lot of `high current' cables in a golf cart..

And in fork lift trucks. There's a supplier of those near me.

Any crimp can corrode. Fill the terminal with solder while holding upright in vise and heating with torch. Slip the end of the wire in the puddle of solder. The joint will outlast the car.

Have a look here: www.vehicleproducts.co.uk

These guys do lots of auto-electrical stuff and I use them frequently. If you hover over the 'Tools' icon on the menu at the left hand side of the page, you'll see a link for battery crimping tools. There are a couple of fairly serious looking crimpers there, priced at around 60 & 80. I reckon the 60 one would suffice for most battery cables you're likely to find on cars (the bigger one is probably suitable for vans/trucks).
