Yep, that looks very familiar. :thumbup

More progress today. Mostly panel and mount fabrication.

Driver's footwell floor pan.



While it looks simple, because of all of the various shapes and curves, it took a lot of time to get the fit correct.



While not shown here, I fabricated the battery mount and fit everything in place.



I made up new battery cables and ran/routed them. I ran out of wiring loom keepers so you don't see all of that in place but its all done. Cables and harness routed, holes drilled for rivets, etc... I only have to drop in the cable sand pop rivet the keepers in place.

I have taken out about 35 lbs of weight so another ballast brick is going in behind the other two, just ahead of the cross member.

You could always just get a bigger battery.

Lookin good. The interior is almost done, what's next?
I just got rid of the bigger battery. That little orange unit is only 5 lbs. I hated the big ugly battery and its big ugly box. It was a PITA. The lighter battery is easier to mount and much safer. And it lets me put the weight lower and more secure.

The big ugly thang is GONE!!!



Once the interior is done, the suspension is next. I have big plans in the works. Its a two phase program. Stay tuned.
