Melted brake line6934 viewsThis shows the damage under the hood, after removing the charger and upper battery.
At the back of the 2 lower rear batteries, you can see 2 brake lines. One black, one white.
Guess which one melted...
At the back right, is where the melted line melted other tubes and wires.
Note that the brake line did NOT touch either of the rear battery posts!

MKII Reg Remote LED bar5202 viewsI brought all the Regulating and Under Voltage indicator LEDS off the regs and mounted them on a little display in the cabin. This made it MUCH easier to see what was going on with the batteries.
Note: Do NOT use IDC connectors. They are not reliable and the wires keep falling out of them.
