WORKING ON THE GROUND!

Today, the tabs were finally bolted down to the battery rack rails and the module support rods were all tightened up. I had to go to Ace Hardware and get some button head bolts to have enough clearance to get the rod nuts to turn but all is good now. Also, before taking the Fiero off of the jacks, gave the underneath side of the rack a good coat of bed liner.

CLEARANCE BETWEEN MODULE AND CONTROLLER

An electrical box was purchased from Home Depot to mount the conatctor, shunt, and fuse. The box will be bolted to the inboard end of the battery module on the negative terminal. I will probably put another contactor and an emergency/maintenance switch on the positive side also, so work began on laying all the components out and mounting them in the box.

Only a week to go until EVCCON and it is looking like the Fiero will not be done in time to take it this year but I am still going to keep trying, until it is time to leave next week.

Thanks for visiting, 

Randy
