Need Help, Engine Bay Fuse Box Power Lug Snapped Off
 
In the middle of rewiring for my engine swap and this piece snapped off while removing nut. Any ideas on a fix or easy way to replace?

Owww the whole blade broke off, looks like you might be salvage yard bound.

Nice rusty bolt. Drill a hole in that metal bracket thing, bolt something like this: Ground Strap Braided, Tinned Cu, 4 ga, 18in - Amazon.com onto it. Position the bolt point so the other end of the braid comes out where expected. Solder the braid to that metal part that goes in the fuse box to make a solid connection. Then make some sort of bracket to hold the terminal end in place. Or buy the whole part online/junkyard hunt.

Good idea, I think I'm going to find one from a part out and just replace the plate as it came out fairly easy.
