    Maybe once I get to another piece I have to polish , it's a lot of sanding sanding and sanding and then polishing it on the buffer , it's very time consuming , I bet I have 6 hours in bringing back that Mallory , and about the same in the starter

    See if I got this straight . . . stand the battery on end in front of the right front tire inside the wheel well? Jesus Cody, that is some serious outside-the-box thinking! Seriously cool!

    Now you're going to be like the NASCAR guys and have to take the tire off to change the battery, that will take at least 45 seconds, you could go a lap down.:eek:;)...Jim

    Cody, aren't you worried about leakage from the battery if it's on the side? I know that modern dry/gel batteries are more resistant and don't leak like the old ones did, but I'd still be concerned about a freak accident destroying all that hard work and unique metal.

    I take it the wheel well isn't deep enough to fit the battery in 'upside up' ?

    PS superb work as usual. I'm still in love with your wagon.

    Clearly, upon examination of the picture of the exposed battery, the terminals (+&-)are pointed toward the sky.
