MKIIC regs for under the seat batteries. (closeup)3059 viewsShows the regs in place. All the regs are mounted to a sheet of very flexible clear plastic. (Actually, the back of a big blister pac of something I bought). I then stuck strips of velcro hooks to the back of the plastic, and this lets me stick the assembly to the carpet.
MKIIC regs for under the seat batteries.2553 viewsThere are 7 MKIIC regs velcroed to the left side foot area. I put them here so I could see them, and it's hard to fit the MKIIC's under the seat.
Battery Box Bottom9950 viewsThis is the bottom of the battery box. It is 3/4" plywood with a 2x2 edge frame.
The colored boxes are pieces of plywood cut to the size of Golf Cart batteries.

Front Battery Box mounting frame3796 viewsSince the front battery box can't just sit in a nice pre-built holder (i.e. the bed of the truck), I had to build a support framework for it.
This box will hold 6 GC batteries.
Front Battery Box plywood3973 viewsThis is the box that sits in the Engine compartment. It will hold 6 GC batteries.
I still have to insulate and fiberglass it.
Battery Hold Down mounting4588 viewsBox is upside down. This shows all the flange nuts I put in the bottom for the battery hold downs to bolt into.
Battery Box shaping3942 viewsAs you can see, I had to shape some of the corners to fit the rounded parts of the truck bed.
