Fuse block, ground block and voltage reducer arrived next day. Quandry where to put voltage reducer? remembered tip about battery issue and found another great tip from same member (sorry i can't find who to give credit to, will work on that) Purchased aluminum bar cut it to size, and bolted reducer to it and bolted the whole contraption to seat crosmembers. Perfect! Mounted fuse block and ground bolck to front side of plate that carries the OBC and Controller, drilled hole through plate for ground wire from reducer, install grommett and hook up ground wire to block, Ran wires from ground and power from batteries to controller and the ran hot wire from controller to fuse block. Ran wires to batteries in 1/4 inch flex to avoid abrasion. This is going altogether too smoothly..... shoot, didn't get fuse block level... oh well

Decided since we were going with a black / yellow theme to paint the front metal black as well as the seat and roof metal. Sanded, acetone rub, acid primed, rust oleum black. Much more difficult to get good results than I had anticipated ...
May end up having these parts anodized.

Moving forward ...lift kit time all sport 6 inch A arm is kit of choice By the way wanted to give kudos to WWFord for the aluminum angle repair to battery bracket tip as well as the aluminum bar mounting idea for my controller this forum is great! Stock front end came off much too easily ( 2 weeks soaking with liquid wrench sure helped) bolted on all sport kit and something is just not right..cry:

Whoops I meant voltage reducer...... I couldn't figure out why the driver side upper A arm was not dropping to the correct angle to engage the spindle. I finally realized that the weld on the barrel portion of the A arm was sloped at a 22 degree angle unlike the left side which. was welded perfectly level down the center apex of the barrel therefore it was resting on top of the bolt that attached the kit to the frame...frustrated I spoke with a rep at the company from which it was purchased and was counseled to try several different "fixes" until I forwarded several pictures to them and demanded that they either send me a new A arm or an RA# to return the entire kit. 1week later I had a new A arm in possession and installed on the cart. Whew! Note to self: buy from BGW sponsors !!! of course I then proceeded to install all the passenger side shock upside down and not realize it until showed it a friend who asked if it was supposed to be that way.....
