Block Heater Plug Reloaction

Well i got the cover for next to nothing and it didnt have a part number on it or id list it up for ya. The plug on the inside i went the the local Do It Best hardware store and picked up a water proof plug for 3.00 and the "massage" it to fit inside the cover, here are some pics of me doing it. Took about 30 minutes. The tools i used were: 13/4" hole saw, 3/16" drill bit, T30 bit, 6MM wrench, wire strippers, a phillips screw driver to tighten the wires.
THE PARTS

Grill before

with the grille installed...the cords not bent to a 90*, or smashed? Mine had to be trimmed out alittle, because of it. Where did you get the plug for the jumper cables?
