Robert plans to bring his A-Frame engine hoist from home to get better control of the motor placement to fabricate the additional cross members and get the alignment perfect before building the adapter housing.
In the meantime, he's made templates of the battery box to make water tight liners. Doing that led to a rethinking of the battery placement, and it made a lot of sense to move the four-pack that was to have been mounted vertically behind the transaxle up next to the other in the center. This will make for a cleaner battery installation while making the wiring much simpler. Seat of the pants engineering at its finest.
