    Nice Relocate and looks innovative , but would it be beater for weight distribution if You mount it in the rear?

    I would hate to get into an impact in that area. Not only is there a heavier object to do more damage....but you're battery would be fucked too.

    the battery would probably 1 of the minor problems if he crashed it bad enough to harm it?

    Re: thegreatdanes Aerodeck restoration project

    Thanks guys! I used a fairly small battery, the smallest one we had in stock anyway. The battery frame just barely fits behind the inner fender/bumper. I removed the horn bracket to be able to move the battery far enough towards the front of the car. The battery frame is also only bolted to the car, nothing is welded on, so it's easy to remove again. To remove the battery you just have to undo the front part of the plastic inner fender. I'll be placing some sort of battery positive terminal inside the engine bay so I'll be able to use jumpstart cables and disconnect the battery easily. I just need to find a suited terminal for that. Tips are welcome!

    Thanks! Regarding the weight distribution I would really rather keep the battery in the front since it's a FWD car, but the difference it makes being in the front or the back is so insignificant that I dont care about it anyways. I just dont like the idea of clogging up the trunk space with a battery and having a hella long battery positive wire running through the car. And where it's located now is the same place as where it used to be, it's just at a lower point which is even better if you take the gravity center point into consideration, but again the difference is insignificant.

    Sorry about your pm, I was in a hurry when I read it so I forgot to reply to you. will get back to it now.

    As A18A points out, the battery would be the least of my worries if that happens. And a battery doesnt cost a lot either.

    Re: thegreatdanes Aerodeck restoration project

    I'm sandblasting and painting some suspension stuff and crossmembers. It's pretty expencive in paint.. I use hammerite smooth paint. replaced the small panels underneath the taillights und repaired some other various rust spots in the rear. I'm also in the process of replacing and repairing the crossmember underneath the radiator. The rust had also infected that area. all in all theres a LOOOOOT of work to be done still.

    Re: thegreatdanes Aerodeck restoration project

    Good to hear that the project is still on!
    Hammerite is old but very good rust proof paint.
    Actually it is also my dream to repaint all the under chasis with Hammerite so that I dont have to worry about it next 10 years!

    Re: thegreatdanes Aerodeck restoration project

    the project has never been off lol, there's just so many things to take care of when your as thourough as I am. -which is really annoying because it draws out everything lol.
    I'm actually painting probably the rear half of the underbody with hammerite smooth also. I just need to get another rubbercoat/sealant that's thicker than what I have now to spray inside the fenders and such before I paint it.

    Oh and I also bought an old '91 ford sierra to replace my prelude lol. A Sierra is just a hiddeous car haha but it drives and it's RWD :p

    Re: thegreatdanes Aerodeck restoration project

    The difference between you and me is that you do it thoroughly where as I think thoroughly and I forget to do it

    What a amazing choice - from Prelude to Sierra!?
    Like McLaren F1 to Tractor with 5 seats j/k
    No, sierra is great car with racing back ground, I have read that it is popular among UK car builders as parts donor car.

    lol thats a quite precise comparison really it certainly handles like a tractor, hmm perhaps maybe even worse hehe.



    knarg, what CAI are you referring to?

    Messy, after I damaged the lude I fixed it enough to be driveable and drove it until now. But now it needs to go get it's 2 years safety inspection, and It's really not suited to pass that and it's not worth it either so after I've removed the engine I'm junking it.

    That's awesome work!!

    This is a really nice restauration project! I know that front lower radiator support can rust to pieces. Mist have been a pain to drill all those spot welds.

    Oh, don't forget to make that square hole in the back for the bumper support. You only have the bottom one now since you rewelded new sheets of metal.
