Great write up, may I never need to do it but it is bookmarked none-the-less.

I only have one issue, you say remove the positive lead on the battery first.
I believe that should be the negative lead first.

Reason, if your wrench accidentally touches a frame or ground while removing the neg lead, no problem.
If you are removing the positive first and you touch a ground you are going to short out. After the negative is removed and taped up if you touch a ground while removing the positive lead, no problem.
