As promised, the battery relocation was done. Firstly a big thanks to Miggz and Dwayne for helping out. I will try make this as descriptive as possible so those looking to do this know how.
To start off with we obviously removed the battery and looked at what needed to be done with the fuse box.
Second was to decide where to put the battery and where to earth it.
Third was to run the cable from the existing fuse box to the new battery location.
Once everything was as it should be we mounted the battery box, and placed the battery in. (at the same time i removed unnecessary panels and parts in the car)
Now running a new power cable to the starter and placing lugs and earthing the battery.
Not all finished yet but below are some pictures of the finished product.
All comments welcome and thanks for looking.
Lmao really!!!!!!! You put the one of me holding my knob!
You are special!!!!
Nice dude! What are the reasons for doing a battery relocate? Weight distribution/more space in the engine bay??
Ahh I see! Cool man will be watching to see what you come up with!
Did you relocate to the spare wheel area
You losing the radio completely?
lol my radio is always on the sound of winning gets boring after a while!
* troll off*
Small update: fitted a fuse to the cable going to the battery. had to bend the ends of the fuse a bit for it to fit.
Battery box fitted and closed up:
Now next step was for me to start getting things for the brake upgrade (haven't decided what i am going to use yet). So i thought i would start with the cooling/ducting to the brakes.
That is it for now. Thanks for looking.
As I said on the other forum, Car look good dude and I like the wheels!

So me being the lazy guy that i am, i was not going to update any threads, but hey here goes.
Drove the car in at work on Tuesday, and took Wednesday off. This is what it looks like. Sorry for the lack of pics as i was quite stuck in.
Some gloves to try stay a bit clean.
Some fender covers to prevent further damage to the paint.
Will post more pics as things happen. Thanks for looking and enjoy.
Nice progress bud. Good to see you planning on doing the internals as well. Will be watching closely
