Hi Chas, GREAT. Many thanks for all you've done for me. I'm beginning to wonder what I'd do without you. I won't be able to order the cells until I've got the case in my itching fingers. I need to check the internal measurements before I can go any further. So I'm sitting on hot coals till it arrives. Fixing to top shouldn't be much of a problem. I'll be using the original battery cover, and of course the battery carrying harness. Cheers. Karl.

Hi Chas, just come home after reorganising the garage to find a package outside my door. I was wondering what it could be as I haven't ordered anything, makes a change. I then recognised you handwriting, I was wondering what on earth had you sent as the package was small and light. After opening the package I couldn't believe my eyes, it's the Oldham battery case. I was mislead by the very quick delivery (makes a change), the light weight, and the size, as most of my batteries are a lot larger, and of course a lot heavier. So many thanks, I'm deep in your dept.[blush] Plus you did a first class job on gutting it. I've checked the size of the cells and its going to be one hell of a lot of work to get them to fit in. But that's the price you pay for having crazy ideas. Once again, many thanks Chas.
