    Actually, my FENDERS are filled with engine bay parts, so engine bay parts look out of place in the engine bay!

    Another thing is that heavy objects can come loose in the event of an accident. I've seen pictures of car accidents where batteries have launched themselves through the front end of a car on impact.
    Agree 100% with bob, I would not have it in the cabin because there's a myriad of rules involved with sealed enclosures and the possibility of it coming loose in the event of an accident.

    Yeah. The battery weighs arouns 10-20kg.
    but that translates to a dynamic weight of in some cases closer to 10x that.
    Personally, given the choice, i'd rather not cop several hundred kilo of acid smacking me in the back of the head......!

    Umm, they're sitting in my lounge room mounted to Bride rails and I've used them to watch tv and play games with!

    As for mounting them in the car, I want to make sure the engine's gonna start before I re-install all the interior.

    Still waiting for my radiator hoses

    I think once the engines running, the progress will go from snails pace to finished in a two week period

    Okay okay... quick update.

    The radiator hoses finally arrived.







    I havent had too much time to spend on my baby, cuz I've been working hard to get a reliable pajero up and running to drive daily. My days of hooptie 3rd gen ownership are numbered I think.

    Enjoy.
