Accident


20020507_Crash006.jpg

Pictures of when I rolled my Sparrow - at low speed in my own driveway....
(Well, it was downhill, around a curve, on a slanted, wet surface, with a wet grass hump in the middle, and I was going too fast...)

MKII Reg Remote LED bar5056 viewsI brought all the Regulating and Under Voltage indicator LEDS off the regs and mounted them on a little display in the cabin. This made it MUCH easier to see what was going on with the batteries.
Note: Do NOT use IDC connectors. They are not reliable and the wires keep falling out of them.

Melted brake line6753 viewsThis shows the damage under the hood, after removing the charger and upper battery.
At the back of the 2 lower rear batteries, you can see 2 brake lines. One black, one white.
Guess which one melted...
At the back right, is where the melted line melted other tubes and wires.
Note that the brake line did NOT touch either of the rear battery posts!

Underseat Battery box with 65 NiCd cells installed3275 viewsThis is with all the cells connected with Busbars.

Genset mounting2286 viewsThis is a view from above the back over the genset rack. The chain is to keep anyone from stealing the genset while I'm parked.
I do need to come up with a cover for the power outlet end of the genset. While it's meant for outdoor use, it's probably not expecting 60 mph rain to be hitting it...

MKIIC regs for the front batteries3519 viewsThis is how I mounted all the MKIIC regs for the front batteries. I used a sheet of clear plexiglass to hold all the regs.Sep 23, 2007

Genset mounting2496 viewsRight side view of the genset rack. Note that it is easy to remove the rack and restore the Sparrow to it's original look. It only takes 6 bolts to remove the rack and put the rear panel back in place.Sep 23, 2007
