NO ACCESS DILEMMA

The holes were drilled yesterday for the liquid tight conduit connectors but there was a dilemma; How could they be pushed in from underneath the car, when there was no one on the top side to install and tighten the conduit nut? Alright, I have a plan, a piece of threaded rod will be dropped through the hole and there happened to be a large washer with a small hole that could be installed on the threaded rod to hold the conduit connector. After a bit of crawling around on my belly like a reptile, it worked like a charm!


WASHER AND NUT ON THREADED ROD


CABLE CONNECTOR WITH CONDUIT NUT INSTALLED

With the spring spacers removed and the battery module installed, the front of the Fiero came down an inch or so, making it a little hard to squeeze under the car without hacking it up, so a board was placed under the front bumper, relieving the spring tension just enough for me to slice under the car. I wasn't worried about it slipping out because the car was high enough with out it that it could not come down and smash me.

  
RELIEVING TENSION ON FRONT SPRINGS

Not much progress, but progress, and after this weekend, I really need a little break, so back inside to watch this week's episode of EVTV.

Thanks for dropping by,

Randy
