Batteries Arrived!

It's Christmas in August! My batteries have arrived!

My plan to fit them all under the hood isn't going to work. If I had just 1 more inch I think all 30 cells would fit, but as you can see in the picture, just 20 cells fill up the space quite well. I'll throw the remaining 10 in the trunk.

On the bright side the split pack will help distribute the weight, down side is I have to run cables down the length of the car.

Picture of the car without batteries...

With batteries, the dog, and me in the car (Timber left his toy by the camera)...

I measured the sizes of my mounting plates for the batteries and the cable lengths. I'll order those soon so I can get these batteries mounted permanently!
