Bigger holes in the Impulse 91875 viewsWe decided that the rather small bolt holes in the end bells of the Impulse 9" motors were just too small.
So we drilled and tapped all of them out to a 7/16" bolt thread.

Front Battery Box mounting frame3581 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.

120V, 20A charge port3569 viewsAs you can see, it has the sideways prong to only allow a 20A rated cord to plug into it.
I'll carry an adapter for those times I need to plug into a 15A or less outlet.

Cables into bed6145 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.)
