Big thanks to Diesel and Sodar!

Did the dual battery install with Borg Warner relay as described by Diesel in the Official Dual Battery Thread. And went the extra mile by following Sodar's idea to mount the battery forward of the driver footwell. It was a pain to get it in there but better than taking up accessible space under the observer seat. Thanks guys for the great ideas and guidance.

I think I get OCD style points for using a billet aluminum battery holder for the Optima Blue top and Streetwires terminations in a place where NO ONE will see them (truth be told, I had the billet and Streetwires stuff laying around).

I'll shoot some photos tonight!

Sorry about the delay. . . darn work! I'll get some pix tonight--hopefully good enough to see the important bits (with all that wiring in the way). Thanks for being patient.

Glad it all worked out for you. Hopefully you put in some good batteries and maintain them regularly, so you will not need to get them in or out of that spot for a few years!

Let's see some pictures. I never really looked into Diesel's Borg Warner unit, so I would like to see the completed project.
