    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.

    Nice dude! What are the reasons for doing a battery relocate? Weight distribution/more space in the engine bay??

    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.


    Fuse






    Fitted:





    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.

    The coil packs were faulty so had to pull the motor . But seriously I will be doing rings, bearings and hopefully IE rods, and all the bits and pieces that go with it.
