I was a little concerned when I saw all that rigid pipe, but then I saw the flex hoses at the connection points and felt better about it. Looking good Duncan!

That battery looks like there's never been anything else installed there. It's a perfect fit, even if you did have some wiggling to do to get it in place.

What did you end up with as a charger?

LOVE your stickers Duncan! So cool!

I have a sign hanging up on the inside of the hood for when I go to car shows (bonnet is always open at those, to draw the bewildered stares!) It contains this picture I stole from the internet, and says, "Warning- best to keep hands OFF the electric bits"

Motor vehicle Traffic sign Yellow Vehicle Car


I didn't feel the need to add the other warning I read somewhere which I really liked: Warning: do not touch. Not only will this kill you, but it will hurt like hell the whole time you are dying"

Given that some people at shows with cars that are polished like a mirror have signs that say "do not approach this car unless you are naked", mine is pretty tame...my voltage is pretty low at around 108V nominal, and everything in my car is "finger safe" or I wouldn't be opening the hood around strangers- but a warning inside the hood can't hurt. And Duncan's sign is entertaining!
