    Install Deka ETX20L 15 pound battery (same as Braille 15lb)
    Cut and packed yoga block foam around it, no moving around or bouncing. Should pass tech inspection.

    Transmogrification Step 6:
    Interior refitted (with mods where necessary), seats fitted (with modified mounts), seat airbag resistors fabbed and installed.

    I'm sure you plan to do this, but please pad your roll bar. Heads & pipes don't mix.

    You know I really don't like this thread! I almost bought a convertible the same color. All your doing is making me regret not getting it. :D
