It’s been a few years since I’ve done much welding. So I did a test piece before starting on my actual battery boxes.
It turned pretty well (a little blobby but strong with no major pits or cracks). So I went ahead and put together the boxes that will each hold 8 cells (for a total of 16) in the engine compartment. I made the boxes quite tight:
I just set them in place to get a general idea how they’ll fit.
