    You really should relocate your battery to the rear since your bay is so nice...

    I bought my first fox in 1988. It was an 88 white GT hatch with a red stripe and grey skirts. I was 22 then.

    good idea but i want to keep my spare when i take the t-tops off it would definately be a problem as well.i like the look of a redtop battery in the engine bay and i might fabricate my own tray out of metal and paint it body color as well.

    Thats where I put mine, the top of the box is about an inch over the carpet line. But my car is a t-top car too so maybe I did something wrong? lol JK


    The car is coming along nicely man!!! keep up the good work!

    we all know that our engine bays look like **** with all those engineering holes i really am after a stock look or what stock should have been for our cars back in the day.if you've looked at the previous pages you would see there was a rollcage in this car and it had a cutout for a sumped tank.my plan is to make it a nice driver thats clean and fun to drive.

    i never measured so i assumed that it would be too high but if i were to do anything with the spare tire area it would be to put a full size rim and tire in there and make it flush with the edge of the tire.i would build a platform around it and then carpet it.i think that would be real cool.thanks man yours is way further ahead then mine and i have been eyeing it closely.one day we need to get together when our cars are complete at carlisle.i haven't been there yet.
