Type 65 Coupe Update: Battery Box   Leave a comment

I bought one of the FFMetal battery boxes from Linwood. It really is a nice item, and it is indeed made with precision. However, it is designed for the Factory Five Racing Roadster. And although the Roadster and the Coupe share the same chassis design, they are not identical.

So I did not expect the box to just plug into the trunk area like the Roadster. But I know several builders who have installed the FFMetal battery box successfully into a Type 65 Coupe.

Looking at the Factory Five Racing forums, I found my answer – thanks to “Fluge” and “CJBergquist” for their posts, pictures and advice!

I will be painting the inside and outside of the battery box at the next work session. Stay tuned for more updates….
