Gav's EV Conversion 12 - Installing the Battery Racks

At last! The battery racks are in!

After a some battery choice problems, some battery rack sizing problems and a few delays I've finally got all three racks installed.

It took a while and there was many a stressed moment but at last the racks are complete.
The rear rack is bolted into the floor with 5mm thick steel bar underneath to hold it in place.
The front racks are welded to the chassis (not the sub frame) to ensure the crumple zones remain... well, crumpley in an accident. :)

Now it's time to get the control-box and Curtis Controller wired up and visit the bank for the batteries.

It's full speed ahead! The conversion will be complete in no time!
