MKIIC regs for under the seat batteries.2561 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.

Genset mounting2970 viewsLeft side view of the genset rack. If I decide to continue using this setup, I'll probably rebuild the rack to look a LOT nicer, and paint it to match the Sparrow.
Rather than having a generator, I'd like to put about 2KWH worth of some lightweight battery in the rack. I just need more range to make it to work.

Motor Shroud for Blower5301 viewsThis is the shroud I wrap around each motor (Brush end) to connect the ductwork from the blower.
It's made out of 4" wide aluminum flashing. Just cut with a carpet knife, and flex the cuts apart.

Version 1 Genset Rack3943 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.
