Question dash lamps flicker at WOT

Ok so I just got my car back from the body shop and since then nothing but problems.

Last night on my favorite twisty back road I noticed that at WOT in 2nd my brake and battery lights were flickering. Any ideas?

Oh yeah, they installed morettes for me and they ran a fused positive lead from my battery, is this normal for installing morettes?

It sounds to me like your alternator is about to take a shit on you. Now I know I say that all the time, but in my experience (3 alternators on 2 cars) this has occurred every time. You might check the grounding for a loose wire, or perhaps even buy a hyper-ground kit and Optima battery, but flickering lights and random lights usually means dying alternator.

Yeah that's what went through my head when I first saw it but I think that it is something in the wiring since the body shop had to hook up the lights and reground things on the new body panels. Now that finals are over I can actually work on it, and the tranny fluid, and diff, and......
