The car looked real solid overall.

He had a welder do up the battery boxes, they looked very nice.

There were ratchet straps used for holding down the plexiglass over the top of the batteries, but even those didn't look "unprofessional".

I believe they are Thundersky batteries. The logo on the batts had a little lightning bolt.
