Thanks e90Nick! No I'm still making my rounds to talk to some body shops to see if I'm going to order the full quarter panel and have them piece it in or do it like ilikebmxbikes.

If anyone can recommend a body shop on the East Coast I would make as long of a drive as I need to have it done perfectly!

Thanks! So excited for everything to come in!

I ordered a Braille battery so I'll let you know how I like it! I will get that installed and coded 1st before the relocation... Then Ilikebmxbikes confirmed that the old 135i bumper will work with the 1M carrier... I will just remove the diffuser so I can run the quad exhaust while I wait for the rest of the parts to arrive...

LittleMonster_III > I can double check and give you the height of my battery for comparison. You also have to account for the distribution box that goes on top -- bumps it up a little more.

In terms of length (assuming you're doing the 1M tray), it has to be under 11" for the floor-nut to be exposed -- this is where the battery-holder screws into.

I also noticed the Braille doesn't have an edge/lip along the bottom. Not sure the stock holder will work if that's the case. Did it come with it's own holder?

You should bug Sk8fe He may have finished the rear quarters?

Good Luck! I hope you know what you are getting yourself into

TUN3D; I bought the Macht Schnell battery hold down for the 1M holder, ilikebmxbikes build had that info for me so I knew it would work.

Venom; Thanks! I'll definitely PM him. Still trying to find a body shop too so that'll help!
