    For those of you who did battery relocation to your trunk...did you have to drop the fuel tank to mount the battery box to the floor? I started looking at it today and I don't see how it would be possible to mount this box without at least dropping and hanging the tank. The floor looks like its double reinforced and I would have no access to even get to the back of the bolt hole. Thanks

    I drilled holes through the floor and installed some riv-nuts. It's holds great and very sturdy.

    Don't remember dropping it, I drilled two holes in the floor and used the threaded rod in the kit. Works well but the rods could use an Allen slot like head studs so you can tighten them..oh well
    Like lwarrior said, you can use rivnuts as well.

    I may look into that as an option. Thanks for the input!

    It's crazy. Figured hey, while the car is sitting waiting for the next steps I might as well just mount the battery box and start running all those lines. How long could it possibly take to mount a battery box right? lol. I look under the car, and I have a Glenns sumped tank, and there is absolutely no way to get to the backside of the bolts for the box without at least dropping the passenger side of the tank. Nothing ever goes quick and easy.

    Yes, but nothing ever goes quick or easy as you would think haha. Bolting the box to the floor should take all of 20 minutes. But of course, nothing ever goes that way lol

    K-member, A-arms, and coilovers installed. Hoping to get the car in the shop for the Scott Rod panels within the next week or 2 and after that motor will be dropped in

    Care to message me the part numbers for the shifter and cable kit? I think I'm gonna spring for the setup as well. The Hammer is inconsistent at best and isn't great for shifts at 6500+.

    Why are you trying to shift it manually? Let the transmission do its work!

    Because no matter what the car wants to shift at 5500 in every gear. We spent about 3 hours one day trying to adjust the shift tables in the tune by both rpms and mph without making any difference. Plus, I'll be going MVB with transbrake setup in the future.

    Got her all cleaned up, and finally dropping off at the shop Wednesday night to get scott rod panels welded in, and a good amount of paint work done. Changing it up on the hood, getting mirrors painted black, and getting a few other things touched up. Once I get it back from body shop motor is ready to go in! She cleans up well for 20 years old! Disregard the sweet wheels, didn't want to leave my bigs/littles on while it was at the shop lol
