The Back Battery Box is Complete

I said I'd try and finish it today and I did. It's late at night, but the rear battery box is done. Here is a shot from inside the trunk. You'll notice the foam insulation surrounding three sides of the box. That's to keep water out. I ran out of foam, so I need to get a bit more to finish up the front edge.

Here is a shot of the back bumper from roughly ground level. You can see the battery box from underneath. It's about even in height with the trans axle. Once the car is on the ground, I should have plenty of clearance for normal driving, but I think I will have to go down steep curbs carefully.
