90 Camry, Repair cut positive terminal?

I have a 1990 camry that was in an accident and the firefighter cut BOTH the positive AND negative terminal for my battery. Now since the positive terminal has a fuse on it, what is the easiest way to fix/replace it? Do I need to just splice it back together? If I do, what kind of wires should I use for both the negative and positive terminal?

Check a salvage yard for another Camry like yours and if the terminals on that car look clean (no excessive corrosion) get them. If you have a local PICK AND PULL in your area, this will only cost you a few dollars.

Well, I have enough length left on the positive terminal to splice it back together, do you think that is a good idea? It looks like the postive terminal (that itself has a small fusebox) is somehow attached to the actual fusebox, so wont I need to cut it either way? Or is there a way to just remove the positive terminal from the fusebox and reattach it in my car?
