MKIIC regs for the front batteries3127 viewsThis is how I mounted all the MKIIC regs for the front batteries. I used a sheet of clear plexiglass to hold all the regs.
Coupler almost off2491 viewsThis is the coupler when it's just about cut off.
We would cut down to the keyway in the coupler, then we could pry it open just enough to tap it off the shaft.
Flywheel adapter is on!3002 viewsCooling it down after pressing it on to the shaft. (more like setting it on, and tapping it gently down.)
Mechanical link between Breakers2969 viewsThis shows how I made it so that only 1 of the 2 power inlet breakers can be ON at a time.
Both can be off, but only 1 can be ON.
Battery Box Bottom Insulation3179 viewsThe insulation on the bottom of the battery box is permanent, and will be encased in the fiberglass.
It's 2" (1.5" actual) foam board.
Cables into bed5166 viewsThis shows how I mounted and protected the cables that run from the front of the truck into the bed.
All under-truck cables are in some kind of conduit, or have a shield between them and the ground.

Version 2 Genest Rack2962 viewsThe one worked pretty well, though I couldn't use the Sparrow rear body panel. I just mounted the license plate on the genset rack instead.Oct 09, 2009

Version 1 Genset Rack2866 viewsOct 09, 2009
Version 1 Genset Rack2975 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
