79: Thursday 10th December 2009

Finished making the brackets to hold the batteries, but they would not fit in??? At the front of the car there is a vertical member supporting the hood slam panel. I removed this and found that the batteries now went in o.k. Next problem was that where I had removed this member, the slam panel is no longer supported and it bends slightly, so the hood doesn't latch shut. had good look into this and found that if I cut the member in half and put a flat metal bar across between the battery brackets at the front then join it to the member half way up, then the batteries fit and the slam panel is supported.
