Will do. I'll take some pics of the process when I make another one, sometime this week.

I didn't realize how expensive that cabling and lugs could be. I have 10 1ft lengths of 2/0 welding cable that was in the garage I got from a garage sale. I will have to see if I can list and sell them for a bit of extra cash .

When you say vapourized the end of the lug, did it actually go away? That's some impressive power, glad you weren't hurt.

Looking good Darin - I'm really impressed with the way you made terminal lugs.

Should I ask for range/speed predictions?

Why do I get the feeling that you'll throw a portable gas-powered electrical generator on it just to see how many MPG you can get that way?

Petrol-powered would sound so much better. We fill up most of our cars with a liquid we call gas. Ouch we must sound bad to foreigners.

2ton: I was snooping around generator websites just the other day.. But no serious plans.

Ben: yup, that's on our "good" batteries. Keep in mind he had already used them daily for 2 [edit - actually 3] years, and was essentially ready to recycle them.

Also, using 5.25 as the lower limit effectively extends the car's range. Time for another range test!
