Make sure you use heavy gauge wire (like the size of battery cable) and have good watertight seals on the lugs (adhesive lined heat-shrink) so the wire does not corrode from exposure to moisture. I would not coil the excess wire as you suggested; better to cut to the correct length and then connect the lugs and seal.
