Plug Bug: Battery Box Simulation

Electric Bug

(Another old post — I’ve been having trouble uploading pictures from home).

The best way to see if the batteries will fit is to do some mock ups. I made some crude ones out of cardboard boxes. Here’s where I plan to put some of the front cells:

And the rear:

I may end up modifying the rear seat slightly to hold two more cells in a more square and uniform pattern.

Making good progress!

Don’t forget to account for the extra .25 inch on each side of the cell plates. You have to add .5 inch to each cell group.

I hope you are juicing up that suspension with stiffer springs and better shocks. All that weight up front is unusual weight placement in a bug.
