Battery Hold Down Post Nuts3582 viewsI put a little weld in the bottom of each hold down flange nut so that the post can't be screwed in too far.
This is to prevent it being screwed down through the covering fiberglass at a later date.

Version 1 Genset Rack3901 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.
