That is some really nice work, especially bringing the unibody back to close to specs, if not better than original. I'm in awe of the amount of work done, and the overall approach I admire.

Huge difference between the weight of the lead versus the lithium.

I got a bunch of lithium a little while back for a Cadillac that I am converting right now, and I went ahead and picked up 45 more of the 100 AH batteries for this rig. It is pretty fun with the light weight and all that tire roasting power, But I want to add a little more range. I get about 55 miles range out of these 45 batteries, so the second pack should put me right around the 100 mile range.

Another before and after sequence. Here it is on the trailer when I first bought it. The whole car was a mess, but the driver side was a really BIG mess.

Driver side looks better here
