A battery box for a 180 mph car

July 06, 2014
The battery box purchased is being welded into the firewall of a 1965 ROVER P5, which was never sold in this country. A sedan with an original 3.0-liter F-head engine, ROVER has found recently that she has acquired a 3.0-Liter BMW N55 engine with direct-injection fuel system and 0.9 atmosphere turbocharger; 392 HP. With this engine under the hood, there was precious little room for the OPTIMA battery. The weldable battery box for SPEEDWAY was the answer. By cutting the firewall creatively, the battery box fits nicely at the right-front. ROVER is in Vermont. The end of the line to drive ROVER when she first runs is forming up around Cleveland.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nice looking box, great price. It is a bit weak though. I would have paid a few extra dollars for one made out of thicker metal. This one is a little flimsy.
Pros:
  • Price
Cons:
  • thin metal
Yes, I recommend this product.

The inside of this box measures 10 15/16" x 7 1/4". The small lip at the bottom would have to be cut off and moved out to fit a battery that is 7 1/2" wide.

Covell Metalworking 1000-22 DVD - MIG Welding
(Part #2841022)
                        

MIG Welding is widely used for car and motorcycle building and modification, but few people really understand how each of the variables affects the finished weld. This program can be easily understood by a beginner, but it covers information even seasoned professionals can learn from. Ron Covell goes through the entire process step-by-step, and gives clear descriptions of how each factor changes the weld, including wire speed, voltage, wire stickout, gun angle, travel speed, and gas flow. He also covers plug welds, patch panels, welding aluminum, and using flux core wire. You'll especially enjoy the special bonus section on Plasma Cutting!
