Battery relocation

The rears fit a little bit better, although they’re still quiteflush. The tires on the wheels are 195/50VR15s (yeah they’re old enough to have the V speed rating in the size) so I’m not sure if even 185s could help me.

Anyway today I started work on battery relocation.

The plan is to run the battery power straight to the starter, and then the accessories and alternator off the lug on the starter.

Battery box and finished terminal, I still need to make the ground cable. I won’t be able to use the rear shock tower brace while this box is in, but some day I plan on going to small Deka battery and replacing the large conventional one.

Battery cable on rear floorboard and under rear seat. Don’t worry about the ghetto looking fuel return line in the background, that’s not its final state.

After switching sides under the driver’s seat, the battery cable runs along the inner rocker panel, up the kick panel and through a hole drilled right above the speedometer cable hole.
