    Hi,
    flo, yes, I have not found dimensions of Nissan cells. Are the old cells same size as new? To get some idea how much space is needed?

    Hi
    mine are about 32x22x7 cm so yours will be around that but only half as thick roughly.
    Someone here is selling some leafs ( or looking for replacement ,, cant remember) search that threat and contact him for real data.
    Sure google doesn`t turn up something?

    greets flo

    Got the right chain guard designed.
    Like this there should be enough space for all screws and some adjustment of chain-lengh.
    Might change its outside shape but screw-points will stay so i am ready to mill some parts

    Another part done

    Merry x-mas everybody.
    Managed to get another part done.
    In order not to anoy the neighbours too much i decided to take only shallow passes, keeping the noise down somewhat-
    Took ages
    Anyway, its done thatīs what counts.

    1440 gr so far, those cutouts will be repeated on the other side, shaving of some more.
    But before i do that the remaining part will be done, do not want to use up those mill bits and get stuck..

    Stay tuned
    Flo

    Merry Christmas Flo

    Looks excellent so far though! I wish I had the motivation and tools you do to just get on with projects like this!

    Cheers

    Ha,
    easy - got no kids to distract me
    And even more luck, people living in the house do not mind me milling even on sundays -
    Did not get the part done completely pics follow tomorrow.

    Hi,
    last Part nearly finished.
    Only misses the lightening holes on the other sides, 2,3 kg so far - should be 2,15 when done.

    Snug fit of the motormount.
    Slidable but no wiggle. Just as planned.

    20201228_192308.jpg

    Stay tuned

    Battery Box

    Hi,
    got the lower part of the battery box done.
    Made of 5 and 4 mm Fiberglass sheet material.
    Just stuck together no glue. Even doublers stay in place by themself.
    Can be lifted by holding to one of these little cable through holes - nice fit.

    Milling the bus bars up and its almost ready to assemble.

    Thats interesting... the fiberglass sheets are prefab and you machined in dovetail tabs? No epoxy necessary to secure after the weight of the batteries installed?
