So, here's what's happened in the past 3 months:
- Cut and painted all the plywood that will be the "box" part of the battery boxes. I previously showed the angle framework for these boxes.
- Discarded my original "battery hold down system," designed and installed a new one that I like a lot better.
- The new battery hold down system meant redesigning the lids. That is done as well, though the lids have not yet been painted.
- Fabricated trays to hold engine components, including DMOC, DC/DC converter, fluid heater, vacuum system, and accessory battery.
- Fabricated and installed PVC pipe through center "hump" to run battery cables from rear battery box to engine compartment.
- Fabricated brackets in trunk for the Zivan charger.
- Replaced rear struts - new struts and new heavier springs (for additional 800 lbs on rear axle).
- Replaced front and rear brakes (rotors, pads)
- Re-wired the garage where the car is stored.
Ok, so here's where the rubber meets the road. I am going to try and be more diligent (have I said this before? Probably, but I don't want to look back and check. Too embarrassed!), so firstly I'll write a few retrospective entries to explain what's happened over the past 3 months then see where I go from there. I've also got to do better with taking pictures. The problem with working alone a lot is that I don't ever think about documenting what I'm doing, so I'm not sure how good these retrospectives are going to be....
Plunging back into the blogosphere I go.
