braille 17 lb. battery? What the out put on that, and how much they usually go for?

mikebontoft 07-16-2012 12:54 AM

nice looks really cool. love the wheels.

question... Degas cover?

Paladin 07-16-2012 04:04 AM

Dj its 1191 pulse cranking amps. it's only downfall is it can't run on pure battery for an extended period of time like a normal sized car battery. but if your really wanting one they go for around 200 something shipped with the braille battery cage.

yeah i know i need a degas cover mike, i could also use a new coolant tank, as this one is all cloudy and stained from use, i also need to fix the a/c system i ahve a leak in one of the lines.

TheGlassMaker 07-16-2012 04:14 AM

Looks good, can't wait to see it in person I'm glad to see I'm not the the only one that will be rocking chrome wheels. An even I have a degas cover on a SPI, lol. What lower grille do you have?

Paladin 07-16-2012 04:18 AM

euro lower grille, for got that in my list, its been so long since i put that on...

TheGlassMaker 07-16-2012 04:32 AM

Paladin 07-16-2012 04:36 AM

i should make this a build thread. so i can update it continually. that way i dont ahve 30+ threads lying about in teh archives... lol.

TheGlassMaker 07-16-2012 04:40 AM
