Default Big Three wiring upgrade for audio system


I'm doing my installation and before installing my amp I'd like to upgrade the 3 main wires (Engine ground, battery ground and alternator to battery). I plan using 4 gauge wire to do so but I'd like to know if there's some kind of walkthrough for that, I searched but did not find anything.

What I want to know is the cable lengths required before I go buy them. And is the alternator wire easily accessible?

I just did this to my NG recently. While not exactly the same, it'll give you something to go by.

I used del city for all my supplies minus the actual wire.
