Project KP30: Relocation Station Part #2

So, this weekend battery relocation escalated… Six weeks later here’s how it sits!

I got carried away and re-painted the bay and rocker lid.   That’s not what took the time though;  There’s been the usual mix of real life getting in the way of play time, but I did end up spending a whole week chasing electrical gremlins.  I knew me and wiring was a bad idea.  The problem turned out to be a combination of a dodgy earth and a (subsequently) fried voltage regulator (sorry, phone pics).

A massive shout has to go to Luke at WOSP Performance who sorted me out with a plug and play electric regulator (and a spare mechanical one).  I never thought I’d get one to fit the car second-hand, nevermind an upgraded electrical one.

Oh yeah, this pic shows how it was before.  I’ve moved everything under the wing and built a new loom to keep everything in the bay clean.

LSD plans have taken a back seat for now.  Thanks to everyone who helped me out on this.  I think I’m going to convert the axle to a 5.6″ over next winter and with that get some new wheels.  Now the weather is better I don’t want the car off the road!
