Adapter Plate alignment finished2427 viewsThen we slid on the Motor adapter plate.
This allowed us to drill the holes to bolt the 2 plates together, and put in a couple of locating pins between them so they can be taken apart and re-assembled without shifting.

Front Battery Box mounting frame3520 viewsSince the front battery box can't just sit in a nice pre-built holder (i.e. the bed of the truck), I had to build a support framework for it.
This box will hold 6 GC batteries.

Old Heater Core4813 viewsI was really surprised at how easy it was to get the old heater core out of the truck.
Just pop out the glovebox, and remove the panel behind it.
That uncovers the core.

The other box has the 2 breakers for the charging system.

Cables into bed6036 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.

(Someday when hitech batteries are reasonably priced, I'll remove this and mount the pack under the bed.)
