I’m with River on retaining the original location. (Despite a drawback or two)
The low and centered position also also keeps the CG in a better place.

Well, my first time on the road with my freshly restored Patrol, I went to the hardware store. On my way out I saw smoke roiling out of the passenger compartment. I pulled the seat forward, popped the battery cover to watch the cable melting down. Ran back in grabbed a pair of pliers and pulled the wire before it started on fire. Still don't like that thing sitting under my seat.

In time the batteries will find their way home.

Costa Rica is a fun country! Rained the entire time we were in Arenal, though! Did you visit the butterfly sanctuary?

Hey Brett,

Glad you are recovering. You are doing a great job on getting your Patrol back in the bush. No, we didn't have time for that but the weather was perfect. We got some great pictures of sloths, multiple vipers and a monkey or two. Even several days without clouds around the top of the volcano.

Good to hear from you,
