Next, The Real Batteries

This is the battery box for the front. It goes low, behind the air conditioner radiator. There will also be one above it and three boxes in the back. The controller is in place now, too. It's above the motor. We'll get a photo of that tomorrow. This is the first battery box with the 12 cells:

I also rewired a retractable cord reel from Home Depot. It now has beefier wire. It will go where the gas tank used to be and feed the cord out the fuel filler door. That's for plugging into regular 120V outlets. We'll also have a 240V connector in there for faster charging. It's the EV style connector (J1772). Both are available here at the house.
