Just another battery box

I’ve spent the past two weekends figuring out the best way to mount twenty batteries in the front trunk. I had this crazy idea to stack the batteries two rows high, but after an email from Mark Urban (he built another electric Boxster) I decided go the same route he did and make a funky shaped box that stuffs all the cells onto a single level:

The strapping is there because I need to compress my cells a little to get them to fit. As they have been sitting for a bit, they have swelled a little. My figures are crossed hoping this doesn’t effect the cell capacity too much.
