Front battery box support bar in place. The original engine mount is used on the passenger side, moved forwards 3/4 of an inch. Another taken from a scrap car was used, somewhat modified to fit, on the driver side.

Detail of the small 2 battery box front support. Note the green Bondo! I couldn't jig it up to weld in situ so I mounted all the parts in place and filled the gap with two lumps of bondo. When it had set I could lift it out and weld it, certain that all the two pieces of angle were aligned correctly.

Siting between the two battery boxes, this suports the main 250A cutout in the rectangular hole, with cable pull emergency off on the flange. The 250A fuse will sit on the lower shelf.

Finished rear #4 battery box, this drops into the old spare wheel well, with the flanges supporting it.

The 12v auxilary battery ( old 12v lights, radio etc) will fit in between one set of flanges and the 132 to 12v DC to DC converter in the other.
