Yeah I will try to get in some piks tommorow when it comes in. The reason why he traded it was because he needed to get rid of the car and he was going broke . So we traded em an Ek9 [civic] and a Prelude. Cant wait for tommorow :P

Bob Sharp built a few. I have some pics somewhere of one that was a Pace Car for some NASCAR race in '77, built by Bob Sharp.

pretty damn cool. i would be weary of that battery if you're planning on making this thing street legal. maybe i'm a worry wort, i would move it inside the trunk or where the back seat used to be or something just to get it up off the ground.

that's gonna be a sweet ride!

the car would handle better if you move the battery above or in front of the rear axel. It would look better too. the problem is that it should be fully enclosed then. just in case of a roll over. we don't want those juices poured on us.

or a gell cell battery. like optima.

if you leave it. maybe cover it with sheet metal just to keep crudd off and prevent something from flying up and cracking it.

Awesome car tho. can't wait to see some action shots.

A Marine store sells good hard plastic battery cases with holes so you can lock the lid closed. Ryan bought one for the battery he relocated to the bed of his truck. That'll work fine for putting it inside your car.
