DIY Battery Relocation

Its been a while since i've done a welding project on the accord and to be honest i kinda missed doin custom stuff . The latest thing i fabbed up is a cage for the battery to sit right behind the right side of the bumper. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Tack welded the cage together:



Mock up of what it should look like:



Engine bay lookin a little cleaner:


First bracket welded on to the cage:


Made a custom ground cable:



All Done:




I did a couple of other mods like the Tial BOV so check out my member's ride page for updates. Hope you enjoy!

Re: DIY Battery Relocation

^That was my first thought, but is the reservoir somewhere else on the 4cyl?

Nice work man, awesome that you did this yourself. I'd love to move mine to make more room in the bay.

Arrow Re: DIY Battery Relocation

Awesome man! Wish I could do the same, but my piping goes where your box is located. You were able to do this, because your piping was routed differently, not in that area.
