If you have never done this kind of work it can be difficult, but it can be done by a novice if he is careful, remember just do one cable at a time, hopefully you can find an exact replacement set so you wont have to be making up cables. The next thing I would suggest is getting a sealed battery. Optima are expensive but very good, there are Excide, Diehards, and I heard that Delco was getting on the band wagon. Those will eliminate your corrosion troubles.
