Hope the New Year is shaping up well for all
- I managed to get a couple of small chores started over the "Holidays".
First...a house battery box.
Big enough for three Lifeline 150 amp batteries. Roughly 17" x 24" with room for about an inch or so of insulation all around. It is at the back on the drivers side right behind the wheel well since my Honda genny will be on the "back porch" right behind it.
Big tin box...
Hole for Big tin box...still trying to decide whether to weld it or screw it in.
Battery box set into the hole. Still needs paint & insulation as well as mounting.
And then there is that spare tire thing...
Here are the frame mounts and hinge. A section of 3/4" black pipe. There will be a couple of sections of 11 gauge 1" x 1-1/2" rectangular tube attached to the hinge so that it can be dropped down if needed. Has been a real pain to deal with since the 140# tire has to be in position to measure anything. Will get the rest of the steel next week.
Have a few of the dash/firewall pieces but need to do a lot of work before I can begin installing anything. With any luck, my custom made steering components will be ready for pick up this coming week.
