Heavy duty relay base/socket ?

Have been searching the net for a pre wired 5 pin heavy duty relay base. The wires are pretty thick, 40 amp, diameter of the copper is roundabout 3.5 mm. Any ideas where these can be find, the ones on ebay/amazon has much thinner wires. Thanks

See page 59 of the Hella catalogue. No idea who your nearest stockist would be.

I've found these to have "hard to find" items before now: Marine Electrical Suppliers | Electrical Equipment for Boat, MotorHome & Caravan Owners

Thanks for comments & suggestions! Still it looks like pre wired versions have thinner wires than required, think i need to do some soldering on my own to get enough amps to the terminals.

If I want a high amp connection to the relays, I have always just soldered and heat shrunk the female connectors. Either way you are soldering something...
