MKIIC regs for under the seat batteries.2460 viewsThere are 7 MKIIC regs velcroed to the left side foot area. I put them here so I could see them, and it's hard to fit the MKIIC's under the seat.

Setting up to couple the motors4155 viewsThis is how we setup to couple the motors. Since both ends of the coupler are heated press-fit, once it's on. It's on. Forever.

Charge Port Door switch5347 viewsThis shows how I mounted a switch on each of the charge port doors. (used to be gas tank doors!)
This switch will tell the Z2K controller if either of the charge port doors is open, and if so, it won't let the truck "start".
Really helpful to prevent driving off with the cord still plugged in.

Version 1 Genset Rack3766 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
